The Kazakhstan Government also see this as a chance to demonstrate their nations forward thinking policies.

The UFO was then seen to suddenly accelerate straight up through the overcast skies. Witnesses reported that the object left behind an open hole of clear air in the cloud layer and that the mysterious hole disappeared or closed within a few minutes.
