Go Back Report # 427



Location: Lake Ryzl, Tashkent, Russia¹

Date: October 19, 1972

Time: night


Several witnesses observed a disc-shaped object hovering above the lake in apparent difficulty. One of the witnesses noted the fall of figures or silhouettes apparently wounded falling into the water. Police reportedly discovered the body of a being about 1.34 m in height, with gray skin; in spite of its long stay in the water there was no sign of putrefaction. It had a prominent belly. Specialized divers could not find signs of wreck in the water or additional bodies. But traces of what appeared to be a crash was [sic-were] found on several rocks and on the lake's edge. No other information.
