Altayskiy kray

The eyewitness Liseeva G.A. and several other persons.

A bright burning star of 1 magnitude appeared in the northeastern part of the sky.

"It rapidly increased in size, and when it reached about the size of a quarter of the Moon (light slightly scattering), the star began to disperse, and a spiral-shaped shell appeared around it and began to unwind. When it reached the size of about 2 Moons, it seemed to me that this body was moving towards me. The body began to take on more and more vague outlines.

When it disappeared, another similar star appeared not far from the same place, and everything happened again. There were several of us who saw it all. And the sight made a depressing impression on everyone, it seemed that this body was somehow piling on top of us, and the distance was hiding."
