In essence, answering the questions, I will explain that around the middle of February, 1959, I was in my apartment in the village of Karaul Novo-Lyalinsky district.
Approximately 6-7 o'clock in the morning, my wife went out on the street and immediately ver she knocked at the window and shouted to me through the glass: "Look at this light ball is flying and turning." At this moment I jumped out onto the porch and from the second floor of the house in which we live from the porch I saw a large glowing ball flying away to the north

the size of the sun or the moon. I can describe the picture of what I saw, so this glowing sphere looked like a bright sun in a fog. The ball moved in a straight line far from us, but I noticed that the light of this ball was constantly changing in a certain alternation of red and green light, around which at the same time a white halo maintained in the form of a ball.
This gave the impression that this moving ball changing color was in a white shell



alternating red and green light periodically. The ball disappeared very quickly and I observed it only for a few seconds, after which it disappeared behind the horizon.
I did not hear any noise from the flight of this ball and believe that the ball flew away from us to a very great distance.
This ball, I reckon, went along the Ural ridge from the south to the north, but I can not specify the exact direction of the flight, because

all this happened instantly within a few seconds and at what distance this ball was from us I could not even orient myself, especially since I got up from bed, and even for this reason I could not orient catch all that was happening.

Recorded correctly. Read. Skoryh (signature)
