New York City, a hill about 600 m above sea level, 10 miles from Homer.

A family of 4 people: father, mother and two children. Father is a physiotherapist

Witnesses noticed what at first seemed to them to be a large jet trail stretching from the northeast to the southwest. This trail was unusually wide. Then they saw a very black spiral formation that was like the tip of a footprint separated from it by some space. After about 10 minutes, the spiral began to move slowly to the west, although the track shifted to the south. In addition, this "black spiral cloud" has become even darker. the head of the family took a pair of six-fold binoculars and saw wisps of smoke actually flowing from a black cloud, almost pouring out of it. Suddenly, the black cloud, still without changing its spiral shape, moved from a horizontal position to a vertical one, increased smoke activity, which resembled a falling plane, and at the same time took a shape somewhat resembling a banana. it stopped, stood motionless for 2-3 minutes, then slowly sank into the fluffy clouds above the western hill and disappeared.

About 3 minutes later, to the left of the place where the first object disappeared into the clouds, a second (or the same one) appeared, shaped like a horizontally positioned pencil. He was moving from left to right. then I saw a flash of white light through the binoculars in his back chat, and he moved forward with incredible speed.

Having moved to the length of 5 of its lengths, it also suddenly stopped. Becoming thicker in the middle and emitting a cloud of smoke, the object moved in the opposite direction, at the same speed and at the same distance. It hovered for a while, then began to shorten, gradually taking the shape of a saucer with a thickening in the middle. After that, the saucer became almost exactly round and slowly divided into 2 parts, one above the other, similar to how bacteria divide under a microscope. The upper object shrank in size, apparently moving away, and the lower one moved down, at an angle of 45 degrees.

In the direction of the point where the banana-like object disappeared. At this point, it split again, but this time the lower object looked like a vertical pencil. The upper, oval object slowly moved away. Then the pencil disappeared from view.

Booster, the rocket and tracks

For UFOs often take stages of rockets, parts of space ships burning in the atmosphere, the launches of various missile technology for military purposes, etc., and traces from them. They attract attention mostly in the dark, but in the day time have a greater aura of mystery.

Formation of the track of the launch vehicle occurs in the tropopause (the layer between the troposphere and stratosphere), which sharply reduced the vertical temperature gradient. The emergence of the so-called "jellyfish" influenced by water vapor, which are subject to enhanced condensation.
