Came across this very interesting and detailed rapport where in April, 1979 Soviet Cosmonaut Victor Afanasyev was tailed in space by a UFO.



Cosmonaut Victor Afanasyev's drawing of the UFO he witnessed.


Cosmonaut Victor Afanasyev.

In April of 1979, Cosmonaut Victor Afanasyev lifted off from Star City to dock with the Soviet Solyut 6 space station. But while en route, something strange happened. Cosmonaut Afanasyev saw an unidentified object turn toward his craft and begin tailing it through space.

"It followed us during half of our orbit. We observed it on the light side, and when we entered the shadow side, it disappeared completely. It was an engineering structure, made from some type of metal, approximately 40 meters long with inner hulls. The object was narrow here and wider here, and inside there were openings. Some places had projections like small wings. The object stayed very close to us. We photographed it, and our photos showed it to be 23 to 28 meters away."

In addition to photographing the UFO, Afanasyev continually reported back to Mission Control about the craft's size, its shape and position. When the cosmonaut returned to earth he was debriefed and told never to reveal what he knew, and had his cameras and film confiscated.

Those photos and his voice transmissions from space have never been released.

It is only now, with the collapse of the Soviet Union that Afanasyev feels that he can safely tell his story.

"It is still classified as a UFO because we have yet to identify the object."

Another Cosmonaut Pavel Popovitch was the one that got the Russian Goverment to release the KGB documents concerning UFOs in the so-called "Blue Folder" well atleast part of them.

It seems more Cosmonauts believe in UFOs

Are we talking about Viktor Mikhaylovich Afanasyev, Hero of the Soviet Union,
Cosmonaut Number 70 of the USSR?

If we are, he wasn't in space in 1979, at the time of this "reported sighting". He was still in test pilot training, and a long way from being in the space program.

His first space flight took place from December 2, 1990 to May
26, 1991.

I'm confused.... nice drawing though. Looks like USAF equipment, but not back in 1979.

But I found this information at:
www.virtuallystrange.net...

Supposedly from Paul Stonehill; Author 'The Soviet UFO Files' - 1998

Seems you are correct. A big part of the Soviet Space Program was secret during the cold war though, might have been that he was on a secret mission?...
