Go Back Report # 1422



In May of 1982 (truly an important year in the history of USSR's UFO phenomena), Soviet frigate SKR-3 was in the Pacific Ocean when its commander, Captain 2nd Rank A. Sokolov and two other crew members observed a UFO. The object ascended from under the water in the area If [sic-of] the Kamchatka flotilla; it was cigar-shaped, about 150 to 200 meters long. The ascent was slow and noiseless. The UFO hovered at the altitude of 250 to 300 meters, where it started its four engines (four lights in the aft part), and rapidly disappeared into the atmosphere. Sokolov wanted to report per the special table for special reports, but there was only one (Number 16) with an entry "UFO landing on the water" (we are not sure that this was part of the instruction per the Setka-AN; if it was, the term NLO (UFO) would not be appropriate; perhaps, the Captain referred to something else). When the ship returned to the base, the Captain made his report. This incident was mentioned in the Russian TV documentary about USOs, aired on Channel 3, 2009.
