The meteorite burned in the dense layers of the atmosphere in the sky over Petrozavodsk. The fall of the meteorite recorded surveillance cameras installed in Kondopoga.
The fall of the meteorite was fixed on April 4, at 01:59 am. The witnesses of the event were residents of Petrozavodsk and Condor.
It is interesting that Petrozavodsk is famous for its Petrozavodsk phenomenon that occurred here in late 1977.
In the fall of 1977 Petrozavodsk spoke of flying saucers and aliens from outer space. Many were stirred up by a mysterious phenomenon that could be observed at night on September 20, 1977.
According to eyewitness accounts, an unidentified flying object hovered in the sky over Lake Onega at about four o’clock in the morning. The shape of the UFO looked like a jellyfish. The cloud shone and emitted rays of yellow-golden color. It was said that these rays left after themselves oval holes in the window panes of a number of buildings. A mysterious phenomenon lasted ten to twelve minutes. Subsequently, the name Petrozavodsk phenomenon took root. This is also called the totality of mysterious phenomena observed in the North-West of Russia in the period from September 1977 to February 1978. The glowing “jellyfish” in the sky above Petrozavodsk was the first of these phenomena.
Several central newspapers reported on the Petrozavodsk phenomenon. In Petrozavodsk they started talking about the celestial puzzle. Romantics assumed: “Maybe it was an alien ship from outer space, humanoids. They are looking for contacts with us, with the inhabitants of the Earth! “.
Petrozavodsk phenomenon gave impetus to the study of anomalous phenomena in the Soviet Union. A special group was formed at the Academy of Sciences of the USSR. The Ministry of Defense also joined the work, and, at the suggestion of military research, it was classified.
