Ignatova Lidiya Grigoryevna reports to the Commission on AYA:

On June 14, 1980, I was returning home with my husband from the train (Chkalovskaya station), which arrived at 23 ... At 23 ... when it was walking along Lenin Street, it brightened as if from a glow. After passing the corner of house No. 7, we saw a glowing object in the form of a "chandelier" hanging motionless in the doorway of houses in the north-west direction and heard a whistle that resembled alarm sirens. The edges of the object sparkled.

Then, from the center of the motionless object, a glowing "object", similar to a signal rocket, moving with a whistle, separated. The trajectory of the "object" was first visible, and then determined by sound. The sound was getting closer and it seemed that the object had fallen near house No. 7.

There was a strong impact, as from the fall of a heavy solid body, and a hiss, as when a red-hot body hits water. A floor-sized cloud of white "steam" rose from the crash site. Then the cloud quickly dispersed without sparks, without smell or stench.

The glowing hovering object continued to be in the same place. I didn't see him disappear, because I hurried home.

A strong impact from the fall was heard in 2 neighboring houses. residents jumped out onto the balconies. The son, who was in the apartment, also heard a whistle similar to the sudden braking of a car, then a blow. The impact occurred about 30 seconds after the end of the TV program.

In the morning, we went out to look for signs of a burn or blow at house No. 7, but did not find them.

Angular measurements from observation points were carried out
