The object was sighted in the sky right over the regional center, hovering over General Butkov Street, Kaliningrad, in the evening. The yellowish, elongated object slowly and noiselessly moved toward Pregol River. According to witnesses, some time later another object joined the UFO. Ivan Lebedev, a student, at once recognized the flying objects to be "saucers". He was at home, listening to music, looked out the window and saw the flying object; took his video camera and decided to film the object. The tape was shown to experts, Kaliningrad physicists- astronomers who spent a long time looking at the ten minute- long blurred video. They did not reach any definite conclusion, and kept the video film for further research. --- FYI: Koenigsberg is the former name of Kaliningrad, a city situated on the Baltic Sea coast, the farthest western corner of modern Russia. Russia’s Baltic Fleet is headquartered in Kaliningrad, where it controls naval bases at Kronshtadt and Baltiysk. Baltijsk, the old Soviet naval base in Kaliningrad, is still partly restricted; Kaliningrad was a closed town for over 45 years. Formerly the capital of the Dukes of Prussia and later the capital of East Prussia, the city was ceded to the Soviet Union in 1945 under the Potsdam agreement. In June of 1941 it was used as a staging ground for one of the main assault zones against Soviet Russia, and remained a very important naval base for the duration of the war. Over one hundred thousand Soviet soldiers lost their lives in the operation to take over the city, and over ninety thousand German troops were taken prisoners...
