IN 1984 the Soviet Salyut-7 space station was orbiting the earth. On board were Cosmonauts Leonid Kizim, Oleg Atkov, Vladimir Solovyov, Svetlana Savitskaya, Igor Volk and Vladimir Jannibekov.
Going about their routine work on the mission they suddenly experienced a flash of light throughout the space station that blinded them all. After a few seconds their vision returned and it was at this time the Cosmonauts saw seven figures outside the space station.
According to their reports, the figures outside the space station where huge – around 90 feet in height! They further describe a great feeling of calm throughout the station, something they all experienced.
These giant figures kept pace with the space station for around ten minutes before vanishing.
After this experience the crew continued on their mission. One hundred and sixty seven days later they again experienced a similar experience with the seven figures appearing outside the station again for a short period of time before once again vanishing.
Two hundred and thirty seven days later with their mission completed the Cosmonauts returned to Earth with their amazing reports. All passed the rigorous physical and psychological testing that Cosmonauts went through after their return from space.
So what did they see?
To this day there has been no definitive answer but as witnesses, highly trained Cosmonauts would certain be credible reporters. Could they have all experienced some sort of mass hallucination? Possibly, but then there are also accounts from Astronauts from the US reporting strange phenomena in space, including angel like beings. NASA claim pictures taken are simply photographic errors and nothing of any note.
With the number of reports from highly trained personnel often con-inciding with other similar reports are governments hiding something?
