Meetings of Russian cosmonauts with UFOs: "contact of Vladimir Kovalenok"

On May 5, 1981, Soviet cosmonaut Vladimir Kovalenok saw something amazing from the window of the Salyut-6 spacecraft.

According to Kovalenok, at about 6 pm, when the ship flew over South Africa, moving towards the Indian Ocean, he saw an elliptical object that flew along with the ship. From a frontal point of view, it seemed to rotate in the direction of flight.

"The object resembles a barbell. I saw how it became transparent and as if with a" body "inside. At the other end I saw something like a gas discharge, like a reactive object. Then something happened that is very difficult for me to describe from the point of view physics ", - said Kovalenok.

"I have to admit that it was not artificial. It was not artificial, because an artificial object cannot have such a shape. I do not know of anything that could make such movements … contract, then expand, pulsate."

"Then, while I was watching, something happened, two explosions. One explosion, and after 0.5 seconds the second part exploded."

"The object was moving in a suborbital trajectory, otherwise I would not have been able to see it. There were two clouds like smoke that formed a boom. It approached me and I watched it."

Subsequently, after the incident, they entered the darkness (twilight zone) for a while. When they left this zone, the two orbs never returned.

Kovalenok described a soft conical shape with an inner tube that suddenly appeared in the form of two balls connected by this rod. Then these two balls moved away from each other with a line connecting them, after which the first ball, and then the second, faded.

Kovalenok expressed surprise at the conspiracy of silence that other space explorers surround UFOs.

“I don’t understand other astronauts who claim that they have not seen anything unusual in orbit,” he notes, adding that he himself personally observed many UFOs, of various shapes and sizes.”

“I will never forget one strange object that we observed in 1981. It was small. When I saw him, I called my colleague Viktor Savinykh, who managed to capture him through the eyepiece of a video camera. But when Savinykh got ready to shoot, the object exploded, leaving only a cloud of smoke. We immediately contacted the Mission Control Center and reported our sightings. We do not know what happened that day, but most definitely this object was not a figment of my imagination,”he said.

Later, MCC reported that something strange was really happening in space that day. “After returning to Earth, experts confirmed to us that they detected an unusually high emission of radiation just at the time of the UFO explosion,” he said.

Kovalenok urged his colleagues not to hide their own experience of encounters with UFOs.

For courage and heroism shown during the performance of space flights, V. Kovalenok was awarded the title of twice Hero of the Soviet Union. Currently V. Kovalenok is the President of the Russian Cosmonautics Federation.
