Russia’s Lake Baikal, is the deepest fresh water body in the world. Local Fishermen tells often stories about powerful lights coming from the deep and objects flying up from the water.
In one case in 1982 a group of military divers training at Baikal spotted a group of humanoid creatures dressed in silvery suits. The encounter happened at a depth of 50 meters, and the divers tried to catch the strangers. Three of the seven men died, while four others were severely injured.
The records describe enounters not only with humanoid figures beneath the water, but also unidentified vehicles moving too quickly to be naval vessels.
Vladimir Azhazha, former navy officer and a famous Russian UFO researcher, says the materials are of great value.
“Fifty percent of UFO encounters are connected with oceans. Fifteen more – with lakes. So UFOs tend to stick to the water,” he said.
Reuters reports more than 50 sci-fi fans have set up camp on the southern end of Lake Baikai to search the skies for extra terrestrial life as part of the ‘Trans-Eurasian UFO-Search expedition.’
The UFO devotees were drawn to the lake after locals reported an increase in strange object sightings just before the release of the government X Files.
Two expedition members, Anastasia and Andrey Chernobrov, claim to have spotted a UFO during the space stake-out.
‘At first the object did not move, but it had a peculiar glow, flashing with different colours – blue, red, yellow, green… We started watching it, and a few minutes afterwards the object began to move chaotically, not like a helicopter, or a plane, or any other terrestrial machine which can fly,’ Andrey Chernobrov said.Unexplained Things Are Out There
