I consider it my civic duty to inform you the following: I read an article from the newspaper "Exactly at 4 10" and I had a desire to write to you about my phenomenon.

It happened on May 14, 1982 at night at 12:45. My brother and I came from a party. Before going home, we decided to talk a little among ourselves. Saar's younger brother Kalju Alekseevich left the car about 300 meters in front of the house. We lit a cigarette and chatted about this and that. We have a natural need. And we were doing our job when my brother suddenly said "UFO".

I also looked in the direction of his gaze and saw a bright spot (and after that I tried to restore the data as accurately as possible), it was about 35 ° from the horizon in height and 35 ° from north to east. The moon was from the north at 24° east and a few degrees above the UFO.

It was a sparkling spot, much larger than the stars, and much smaller than the moon. Behind this spot, a cone was visible, which was rapidly expanding behind it. It seemed to be smoke, although it had clear boundaries.

Later, it dissipated a little. It left the impression that they were approaching us at great speed, being very far away from us.

The night was very clear and it seemed that the sun was shining on this cloud. My brother believed that they were coming straight at us, although it was noticeable that they were leaning slightly to the left.

We observed this phenomenon for about 5 minutes, after which we went home to share our impressions with our wives. There was a maximum of half a minute in the room. When we came back to the courtyard, the picture in the sky changed. These spots were no longer visible, instead there was a dispersed cloud, but soon a luminous spot appeared again in the upper part of the cloud. Fiery streams were sent from the spot in three directions. These receding spots were visible for another 5 minutes. Then they weakened so much that it was difficult to distinguish. The cone no longer appeared behind him and he himself dissipated slowly, being visible for a long time.

When the spot was noticed, it was 12:45, and when it disappeared, it was 12:55. It seemed amazing that it could turn back so sharply at an angle.

This phenomenon was also seen by my older brother (who came to our village), being at home in the Rakveros district at the Royle state farm. The name of Elmend's older brother is Yuri Alekseevich.

I also remembered that at around 10 o'clock the previous evening, the USSR launched a spacecraft into orbit.

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.
