More than an hour freight train was pulling for an unidentified flying object
This story almost 20 years. But it is so unusual, as discussed in Karelia until now, if there was recent. Especially as more and still live the participants, after an amazing event that believed in the existence of UFOs.
It happened in February 1985. Cargo train number 1702 of 70 empty cars and two-section of the locomotive, followed a familiar route to Kostamuksha through Petrozavodsk and Suojärvi. The driver and his assistant S.Orlov V.Mironov talking about — about this, watching the road. Essoila proceeded station. The time was 20 hours and 35 minutes. Went on a schedule.
Suddenly, Sergei Orlov said the trees strange object resembling a ball that moved in parallel with the train. Railway workers have to look closely to the object and guess what it might be.
Look — driver turned to his partner — he has released a beam of light to the ground and then pulled it back …
Mironov was about to answer, but seemed to lose the power of speech. The ball suddenly darted across the path of the composition and the locomotive was in front of about 30-50 meters. Sergey Orlov instantly shut off running motors that have the power to put pressure on the brakes, trying to prevent a collision with a luminous ball. But the car did not obey him. The train continued to move. Created the impression that it was pulling some unseen force.
S.Orlov and V.Mironov as if hypnotized, all eyes stared at the mysterious object. As they later told the investigative team ATC, he was a regular geometric shape, with a diameter of about four meters. Moved silently, without touching the ground. As if sailing.
New Sands approached the station. Sergey Orlov turned the radio. To his delight, it worked. Sergei began to explain the assistant station Lydia Kozhinoy what happened to them. She could not understand. But decided to go out and meet the train. Imagine her surprise when she first saw a vibrating object, resembling the inverted bowl, followed by a glowing ball, and then locomotive, which went at a speed of not less than 60 kilometers per hour. The woman was frightened, thinking that now the ball crashes into building a small station.
But at the front arrow ball suddenly separated from the locomotive and walked slowly house party. The composition of the same stop and failed. He followed with the new Sands of typing speed.
The driver and his assistant talk only about the ball, not to mention an object like an inverted bowl, because they are out of the cab did not see him — says historian Alexei Popov, known in the republic researcher of anomalous phenomena, collected and studied all the cases related to UFOs Karelia. — We observed only a glowing ball.
But back to that mysterious day. After passing the entrance arrow ball again rushed to the train. At that moment, when he departed from the train, its speed dropped, probably half. Diesel jerked so that the cab got a variety of items, and the assistant driver hit the windshield. But as soon as the luminous object took his place in front of the composition, the rate rose again.
We stopped at a station outpost. The ball disappeared in the place of the forest. The station had to wait for a train that followed to Petrozavodsk. The driver immediately got out of the cab to check the slopes. Do not have time to walk around the locomotive, he saw a light and felt as if some force crushed him to the car. He could not move. Barely made it to the cabin. And the train started moving, as if waiting until he takes his job. And moved for a while, until the ball has not disappeared completely behind the forest.
The whole story lasted for an hour to 20 minutes, — says Alexei Popov. — Ball dragged the composition of more than 50 kilometers. During that time, were saved 300 pounds of diesel fuel. Participants experienced a strange incident severe nervous shock. The reliability of the incident confirmed charts recorders installed on the locomotive and other official documents. However, the explanation of everything that has happened, no one could give. By the way, and saw a glowing ball at the station Kutizhma, even before the event with a freight train number 1702.

enormous energy potential. Besides, as said driver Sergey Orlov, the "behavior" of the world … it seemed sensible. He went around the station, the input direction, went into the woods at a time when a train was moving. And yet, after the incredibly tired from the shock driver, in the hearts of "applied" to the ball, so he left them, finally at rest, an unidentified flying object, as if responding to a request from the train flew off and disappeared into the forest. Over the railroad did not see him.
That's such an incredible story. To believe such a story is impossible, but only as long as you meet with specific people that become parties. Looking into their eyes, you know — well, these are not hard workers, railroad workers to compose all kinds of nonsense. They are confident that touched in the February winter evening with representatives of extraterrestrial civilizations.
Svetlana Tsygankova, Petrozavodsk.
We were asked to comment on the amazing story of the doctor of physical and mathematical sciences, professor of the Moscow State University of Leonid Speranskii:
— The hypothesis of extraterrestrial life in other galaxies are not excluded. Increasingly, there are reports that the organic material does not have to be based on carbon and water, as happened on this planet. According to the proponents of this theory, life is possible on the basis of silicone or other chemicals, and these forms can survive at very high or very low temperatures. If you trust this kind of assumptions, life can exist in the most bizarre forms — including, in the form of clouds or "balls of light" of the organic matter. However, at this stage of research, we can neither confirm nor deny the existence of extraterrestrial life.
The number of UFO reports it is difficult to calculate. In our country, according to a poll of "Bulletin UFO" in 1999, about nine percent of the population, there are millions of people who claim to have seen "flying saucers" and 56 percent say they believe in their existence. A similar situation in other countries, so we are dealing with a phenomenon of global importance. "Messages" on the strange light in the sky, or objects that behave in a strange way, hover, float or rapidly worn over us on an incredible path, arrive incessantly. We live in the era of space travel, people are used to looking at the sky and see the planes, helicopters, balloons. However, they want a miracle, the inexplicable phenomena. Such is human nature.
In 1963, the United States implemented the project "Blue Book", in which it was examined about 13,000 cases of UFO reports. After a long investigation the commission came to the conclusion that there is no evidence that the considered phenomena are of extraterrestrial origin. Just in some cases we do not have enough data to determine what we have seen in reality. With careful clarifying the nature of the phenomena revealed that the vast majority of them is anecdotal stories of people excited. Of the remaining evidence, 80 percent can be attributed to the close proximity of a military unit or aerodrome, that is, the observed object can take off from there. Approximately 18 percent are caused by atmospheric phenomena, and only one and a half to two percent were classified as unexplained by science phenomena. However, this does not mean that they are of extraterrestrial origin.
Petrozavodsk phenomenon, not just described in the popular literature, in my opinion, belongs to the category of well-designed UFO legends, which believed in the reality of not only the participants, but even some law enforcement officials in Petrozavodsk. What was it? One of the most plausible hypotheses, in my opinion — a fireball, which, as is known, can occur not only during thunderstorms. "Glowing Ball" ball lightning — one of the least understood phenomena of our time, to clarify the nature of which scientists have not yet succeeded. Apparently, this colossal energy substance, the power comparable to the largest power plant, is the spontaneous emission energy of the quantum vacuum, which is filled with all of the physical space. About the unlimited possibilities of the quantum vacuum Einstein wrote back at the beginning of the last century. It is known that ball lightning is able to influence the psyche and well-being of people, but to predict its "behavior", and the more control it, we do not yet know how. Perhaps this can be our descendants … So around us is full of mysteries, and the search for that "humanoid" is not necessary.
