Go Back Report # 1415

??-??-1902

 

In 1902, a Russian patrol cruiser had detained a Japanese fishing vessel near the shores of Kamchatka. The Japanese captain swore that he came to the Russian waters because his compass was broken. Later it was determined that a big radiant cloud was at fault. It appeared suddenly over the horizon. Russian sailors had encountered such phenomenon on a number of occasions in the Sea of Okhotsk. Once, behind the moving ship, an unusual bright greenish-white light exploded on the surface of the sea. This glowing spot grew in size and slowly surrounded the ship with a fiery circle. Later it separated itself and rushed forth, three minutes later reaching the horizon, leaving a bright reflection in the clouds, as a glow of a large city would.

Note 1: There are 41 Kamchatka’s named on the government’s search engine, 10 of which are populated places. Therefore, I have selected the peninsula which ties into the chain of islands that almost connects Japan to Russia.-CF-
