A student from Kaliningrad, Russia, was able to film an unidentified flying object over Kaliningrad (Russia). The UFO-like object was sighted in the sky right over the regional center. The luminescent object hovered over General Butkov street, Kaliningrad, in the evening. The yellowish, elongated object slowly and noiselessly moved toward Pregol River. According to witnesses, some time later another object joined the UFO. Ivan Lebedev, a student, at once recognized the flying objects to be "saucers".
He was at home, listening to music, looked in the window and saw the flying object; took his video camera and decided to film the object. The film was shown to experts.
