Go Back Report # 1408



Location: Redant, North Osetiya Republic, Caucasus, Russia

Date: 1982

Time: unknown


Four witnesses were traveling [sic] by car on the Voenno-Gruzinskaya Road (military Georgian road) when suddenly the engine of their vehicle stopped working. They stepped out of the car to see what had gone wrong and suddenly saw an approaching object that at first looked like a large foggy spot, gradually taking the shape of a flying craft as it approached further. As the craft neared they could see that it was a huge circular craft the size of a "volcano crater" and about 15-17 meters in height. The witnesses were able to see a large window and what appeared to be sophisticated equipment visible inside the cabin. The object descended and landed on three props. A hatch opened and a ladder jutted out. Soon several humanoid figures descended down on the ladder. They were huge, exceeding the normal human height three times over or about 5 meters in height. The humanoids paid no attention to the witnesses who felt numb and completely confused during the encounter. After a short stay on the ground, the humanoids again climbed onboard the craft, which was then slowly covered by a mist (cloak) and literally melted from sight in front of their eyes. Everything was observed from a distance of about 30-40 meters.
