Fatigue and the stress of just being in space for extended periods of time sound like reasons as to why one would hallucinate, but did the Russian cosmonauts aboard the Salyut 7 really see angels? Continue reading to see more of this mind-blowing story.
In July 1984, Russian cosmonauts aboard the Sovie space station Salyut 7 were on day 155 of their mission. This was also the day that the group reported strange lights and beings. According to commander Oleg Atkov and cosmonauts Vladmir Solovyov and Leonid Kizim, the space station was completely bathed in a mesmerizing orange light. It appeared to enter from outside the space station and bled through an absolutely opaque wall.
On day 167, the crew was then joined by another team of three from the Soyuz T-12 spacecraft: Svetlana Savitskaya, Igor Volk and Vladimir Dzhanibekov. Shortly after joining then, the Salyut 7 was once again bathed in a warm orange light. Then, like clockwork, they immediately looked out the portholes, and once again, were joined by angelic beings. They were reportedly the size of an “airliner”, according to the cosmonauts. This incident was deemed top secret by the old Soviet Union and the crew was cautioned not to speak of the event publicly.
All six astronauts reported seeing “a smiling angel.” The incident could be attributed to the the fatigue over a long space voyage, if it were only about the first crew. However, this explanation does not fit for the second crew – a meeting with the angels took place shortly after their arrival at the station. So the second crew just confirmed the observation of the Angels.
Here are a couple of Unidentified Objects in this photo taken during the STS 115 Shuttle Mission. The first object is red and glowing above the space station while the second is a ghost like object. These objects can be found in the Original NASA photo click here
