Posted: 5/11/2005
Location: Chimkent (Shymkent) (Kazakhstan),
Shape: Cigar
Duration: 30 min
Characteristics: There were lights on the object
Orange sigar-shaped glow with dots of light above were sighted in the mountain area near the Tourist camp.

There were 3 objects observed, flying above mountains at aproximately 30 degrees above the horizon. It was about 11 pm, the objects appeared as a sigar-shaped glow of orange color with the dots of white light above it; and one blinking light at the front of each object. The size of the objects compared to the plane would be about 50 times longer and I guess 10 times wider.

All three of them were flying in the same direction for a few minutes, then two of them merged into one object. Later the glow and the white lights went of, there only remained the blinking lights that continue moving in the same direction. Lights disappeared after few minutes.
