Picture missing


On a hot summer afternoon, engineer I.V. Surkov observed a white, luminous object hover in the northern sky. Nearly twice the size of the visible moon, the UFO began to fly on a southerly course. As it approached several clouds in the sky, the clouds vanished only to reappear as the craft left their vicinity.

Category: UFO Sighting


Artist, philosopher, and explorer Nicholas Roerich and other members of his expedition saw a huge, shiny, oval-shaped object, one side of it glistening in the sun, high over the Altai-Himalaya. They watched through field glasses as it flew south at a great speed and then changed direction, before disappearing in the intense blue sky. A Buddhist lama said that the object was a sign of the protecting force of Shambhala, a legendary spiritual kingdom referred to in eastern traditions. 20. Nicholas Roerich, Altai-Himalaya: A travel diary, Kempton, IL: Adventures Unlimited Press, 2001 (1929), pp. 361-2; Nicholas Roerich, Shambhala: In search of the new era, Rochester, VE: Inner Traditions, 1990 (1930), pp. 6-7, 244.


Nicolas Roerich wrote of his caravan trip across Mongolia:

"We all saw, in a direction from north to south, something big and shiny reflecting the sun, like a huge oval moving at great speed. Crossing our camp, this thing changed in its direction from south to southwest. And we saw how it disappeared in the intense blue sky. We even had time to take our field glasses and saw quite distinctly an oval form with a shiny surface, one side of which was brilliant from the sun,"
