Strange things are happening

Ukrainian astronomers say the skies over their war-torn country are occupied with a large number of UFOs.

This may seem like a scene from a movie but the official claims were outlined in a new research paper published by the Main Astronomical Observatory of Ukraine’s National Academy of Science.

The paper, titled “Unidentified area phenomena I. Observations of events,” claims that researchers have detected numerous UFOs from two meteor observation stations in Kyiv and the village of Vinarivka, about 75 miles outside the capital.

The authors of the paper writes: “We see them everywhere. We observe a significant number of objects whose nature is not clear.”

They added: “Flights of single, group and squadrons of the ships were detected, moving at speeds from 3 to 15 degrees per second.”

Real-life actual scientist  involved in the case described two different types of UFOs, which they call “cosmics” and “phantoms.”

According to the document, a “cosmic” is a luminous object that appears brighter than the background of the sky, while a “phantom” is a dark object with “a completely black body that does not emit and absorbs all the radiation falling on it.”

The main characteristic of the UFOs observed by Kyiv’s astronomers is their extremely high speed, which can only be detected with particular equipment.

The paper does not mention the ongoing war with Russia – and missiles flying  and does not say what these objects might be.
