The Petrozavodsk Phenomenon

In the early hours of September 20, 1977, the residents of Petrozavodsk, a city in northwestern Russia, along with people across a vast region spanning over 1,000 kilometers, were startled by an extraordinary celestial event. A bright, glowing object, likened to an exploding star, showered rays towards the earth, sparking both alarm and fascination.

A Jellyfish in the Sky

Witnesses described the object as a gigantic jellyfish, approximately 300 feet across, with golden, beautifully colored tentacles. The beams of light it emitted had a distinct curve, resembling the tentacles of a jellyfish or octopus. The phenomenon was not just a visual spectacle; it had physical effects as well. TASS (The Russian News Agency) journalist Nikolai Milov reported that many onlookers appeared sick/ill for hours after the incident, with some feeling an “electric current” when the lights appeared. Moreover, where these lights touched the ground or windowsills, they left rough holes.

A Closer Encounter

The incident escalated when a bulb-shaped object detached from the main craft, moving over rooftops in what seemed like a reconnaissance mission. This object eventually returned to the main craft, which then transformed into an elliptical ring and disappeared into the clouds, leaving a red hole behind.

Further Investigations and Findings

Vasil Zakharchenko, a publisher with alleged reliable government sources, reported additional bizarre effects, such as coin-sized holes in the ground and windowsills, and melting glass. A factory window was so distorted that it was removed for analysis. Under electron microscope examination, scientists discovered a crystalline structure on the surface of the non-crystalline glass, a phenomenon considered impossible under normal conditions. This discovery led some analysts to suggest that the objects causing these effects were “active.”


Western scientists, including Dr. Dale Cruikshank and sociologist David Swift, as well as Professor Manfred Kage, analyzed the glass samples and confirmed the presence of crystalline structures around the holes’ edges. Despite the intense scientific interest and investigation, the official study initiated by the president of the Academy of Sciences concluded that the light beams causing the holes were due to an “unknown natural atmospheric phenomenon,” possibly related to human technology like a rocket launch.


Early Soviet reports called the Petrozavodsk phenomenon the September 20, 1977 phenomenon, which later became known as the Petrozavodsk phenomenon. Also known as the Petrozavodsk Incident or the Petrozavodsk Miracle. In the USSR, the term “unidentified flying object” was replaced with the term “anomalous phenomenon” for research purposes.

Lake Baikal, UFO Hotspot

Lake Baikal

Lake Baikal, is the the world’s deepest and most voluminous freshwater lake. According to “Russia’s USO Secrets: Unidentified Submersible Objects in Russian and International Waters” by Paul Stonehill and Philip Mantle, this Siberian lake has been a focal point for extraordinary phenomena, including encounters with unidentified submersible objects (USOs) and other unexplained events.

A Legacy of Legends and Unexplained Phenomena

Local lore paints Lake Baikal as a bottomless enigma, connected to all the world’s oceans, seas, and rivers. It is said to house the silver castle of Erlik-Khan, the Siberian god of death. The lake’s depths and its surrounding region have been a hotspot for UFO sightings since 1904, with reports describing black objects with searchlights, colorful rotating “wheels,” and cigar-shaped crafts.

Erlik-Khan, the Siberian god of death

A significant incident near Lake Baikal occurred in May 1964, involving an anti-aircraft missile unit stationed about 25 kilometers from Ulan-Ude. The soldiers witnessed an unexplained glow over the lake, followed by the emergence of a fiery orange sphere. This event led to a loss of communication and heightened military alertness. Despite the involvement of the local KGB and multiple military witnesses, the incident remains unexplained.

In autumn 1965, another peculiar sighting was reported. A massive, silent, cigar-shaped object, estimated at 250 meters in length, flew across Baikal, leaving behind an inversion layer but producing no sound. It released three small, colored spheres before disappearing near the Hamar-Badan mountain range.

The 1982 Divers’ Encounter

Perhaps the most extraordinary encounter occurred in 1982, involving seven military divers in Lake Baikal’s depths. As reported by Alexey Tivanenko, a doctor of history, these divers encountered mysterious, three-meter-tall beings in silvery suits, seemingly without traditional diving equipment. The divers were tasked with capturing a creature from Russian folklore, but the mission ended in tragedy. A rapid ascent from the scuba divers caused decompression sickness, and due to limited decompression facilities, three out of the seven divers lost their lives.

The Height 611 UFO Incident of 1986

In January 1986, the small town of Dalnegorsk in Primorsky Krai, Russia, became the epicenter of an extraordinary event that would later be known as the Height 611 UFO Incident. This incident, which remained relatively obscure until 1995, was catapulted into the limelight by an American UFOlogy TV series, “Sightings,” captivating audiences with its compelling evidence and mysterious circumstances.

The Night of the Incident

On the night of January 29, 1986, over 20 residents of Dalnegorsk witnessed a spherical object traveling at speeds exceeding 120 mph. In a sudden turn of events, the object lost control and crashed into Limestone Mountain, locally referred to as Height 611. The object burst into flames upon impact and remained ablaze for several hours, drawing the attention of the town and beyond.

A few days after the crash, on February 3, a team from the Academy of Sciences arrived at Dalnegorsk to investigate the site. They found the crash area, a small patch measuring 6.5 feet by 6.5 feet, covered with a peculiar black film, lead, mesh fragments, and beads. Despite taking detailed photographs of the site, these images turned out blank when developed, adding to the mystery.

Intriguing Findings

The investigation of the debris from the crash site revealed some baffling characteristics. The beads were composed of lead, silicon, and iron, with soil and material tests showing similarities to the infamous Tunguska event. The mesh fragments, nearly indestructible even in strong acids and organic solvents, contained unusually high concentrations of gold, which was unusual for the area. These findings seemed to support Dalnegorsk’s reputation as a UFO hotspot, possibly due to its rare metal fields.

The year following the Height 611 incident saw more UFO sightings in the vicinity, bearing similarities to the 1986 crash. Three years later, another UFO was reportedly sighted landing at the same site. These ongoing sightings fueled further speculation about the significance of the crash and theories about UFOs being attracted to the unique terrain of Dalnegorsk.

The Voronezh UFO Incident of 1989

The Voronezh incident on September 27, 1989 stands out for its high strangeness and the involvement of young witnesses. This event unfolded in a local park in Voronezh, Russia.

The incident began when three children, Zhenya Blinov, Vasya Surin, and Yuliya Sholokhova, were playing in the park around 6:30 PM under warm weather conditions. They, along with other onlookers, witnessed an unusual aerial object. Descriptions varied, with the children seeing a banana-shaped UFO, while others reported a pink glow that transformed into a red sphere about 10 yards in diameter. The object eventually landed, captivating the growing crowd.

From the landed UFO, a hatch opened, revealing one to three alien beings and what seemed to be a robot. These beings, described as humanoid and about nine feet tall with small heads and three eyes each, wore silvery suits and bronze boots. Their appearance and actions, including creating a shiny triangle in the air and activating the robot by touch, added to the otherworldliness of the event.

Alarming Interactions

The encounter took a more alarming turn when one of the aliens pointed a tube-like device at a 16-year-old boy, causing him to vanish temporarily. After a brief exploration, the aliens and their robot re-entered the craft and departed, and the teenager reappeared. Investigators later identified the landing site by a 20-foot diameter circle with dents and found two unusual rocks at the scene.

Lieutenant Sergei Matveyev from the Voronezh district police station, a witness to the event, reported the incident with caution. Despite his initial skepticism, the object’s silent movement and rapid low-altitude flight convinced him of its unusual nature.

The incident gained widespread attention when TASS, Russia’s largest government-owned news agency, reported it on October 9, 1989. Journalist Vladimir Lebedev conducted interviews with witnesses and experts, adding credibility to the children’s accounts.

The M-Triangle: Russia’s Enigmatic Perm Anomalous Zone

Nestled in the secluded forests of Russia, the M-Triangle, also known as the Perm Anomalous Zone in the Ural Mountains, stands as a beacon of mystery and unexplained phenomena.

A Zone of Remarkable Transformations

The M-Triangle is reputed for its influence on human intelligence and well-being. In a striking example, a military dropout reportedly transformed into a cosmonaut after spending just two weeks in the area. Researchers exploring this zone have encountered a range of unexplained phenomena, including hearing distant traffic sounds, choirs singing, and witnessing unusual celestial formations and mysterious symbols in the sky.

A History of Unexplained Events

The M-Triangle was inaccessible to civilians until 1988 and is known for its strange lights, UFO sightings, and encounters with unusual beings. Locals frequently report bizarre occurrences, including phosphorescent lights, dark figures, flying spheres, and animal mutations. The area’s history of strange sightings dates back over a century, with several Soviet expeditions sent to investigate, though their findings remain largely undisclosed.

Some believe that the former uranium presence in the nearby mineral-rich mountains might attract UFOs or cause mass hallucinations. Visitors often report strong energy forces, either positive or negative, and experience unexplained phenomena. The area’s anomalies have been attributed to changes in the magnetic field, possibly caused by electromagnetic energy from the Earth’s lower layers.

The Sacred Status and Broader Context

The strong energy in the region might also explain its sacred status to the Mansi people, indigenous to the areas west of the Ural Mountains.
