On January 29, 1986 something of very strange happened in Dalnegorsk, Primorsky Krai region, former USSR.

See location in Google Maps

Dalnegorsk's inhabitants noticed a reddish ball flying parallel to the ground, emitting no sounds, which size was about "the half of the Moon's disc": its speed was approximately 34 mph and it was hovering about 700-800 meters above the ground.

Height 611, Dalnegorsk

Eye witnesses described the fall in different ways: someone claimed that the ball fell down emitting a flash, others claimed that it kept hovering over the Hill for a while, performing slow ascending and descending manoeuvres.

Artist impression of the crash
Full res:

Three days after the sighting, Valery Dvuzhilny, Head of the Far Eastern Committee for Anomalous Phenomena, climbed the hill with a grup of volunteers: they discovered a landing ground of 2x2 meters, and the appearence of the ground was like affected by very hight temperatures: remnants of silica rocks were found splintered due to exposure to high temperatures and "smoky" looking.
The objects collected at the site were later dubbed as "tiny nets", "mesh", "little balls", "lead balls", and "glass pieces" (i.e., that is what each resembled).
Black glass-like drops and mesh particles (like tiny nets) were also found:
totally, 70 g of lead, 5 g of mesh particles and 40 g of black glass like drops were found on the site.

The Height 611 incident was observed by a big amount of people: policemen, firefighters, journalists, doctors, teachers, Protection Ministry of Internal Affairs officers, a group of schoolchildren.
One of the most interesting eyewitness was Vladimir Kondakova: he was on the bus when the ball flew over his head near Hight 611. The object was already flying low: in according to what the witness reported, it was round, without any projections: it was metallic in colour and slightly reminiscent of the hot stainless steel.
He thought that it was some military projectile launched, he did not heard any noises. He also reported to don't have heard any noise at the moment of the crash.

Witnesses described in some different ways what happened after the fall of the object. Some pointed out that it fell to the ground and never re-appeared, while others, including the group of schoolgirls who were at the stadium "Stroitel", reported that the object slowly rose and fell 6 times, for around half an hour: while rising was bright, while falling its luminous intensity was weak: in 1988, using proton magnetometer, were found 6 magnetic "spots" on the site.

In according to Ministry of Internal Affairs officers, fire at the site continued until deep night, although it was a flat floor and, except for a small stump, there was nothing to burn. The trajectory of the object's flight was from south-west (from the Chinese border) and did not correspond to launches from the Baikonur launch site.

When Dvuzhilny climbed the hill, the snow was up to a depth of 50-60 cm (rise was extremely difficult). The crash site was found quickly, there was no snow on it at all: it was densely covered by siliceous shales, its appearance was pointing to recent events. There was a strong smell of something chemical, it recalled the smell of some products used for
the wood. The The crash occurred in a point characterized by elevated magnetic anomalies, up to 200 nT, which is under Mount Izvestkovoy. The anomalies in the crash site were formed with gravitational fields, electrostatic and magnetic components, the main vectors of which were directed vertically upwards: the anomalies in the area have adverse effects on radio electronic equipment, and on the human body: headaches, increase blood pressure, sensor failure, loss of coordination and more issues.

A thorough inspection of radioactivity at most places and on different samples returned that all values were no higher than natural background (alpha, beta, gamma, fast and slow neutrons). During the time after the crash, all the surroundings were carefully examined, but nothing relevant was found.

Wednesday, January 29, 1986 (the day of the crash), the weather condition were:

16 hr. 305 wind, at speed of 3.7 R = 742.0.
19 hr. 315 wind, at speed of 1.6 R = 742.9.
22 hr. the wind was absent R = 742.9.
The temperature was 23 degrees Celsius, precipitation and clouds were absent.

The landing ground

The analysis:

A chemical analysis of the drops showed they were mostly composed of lead, silicon, and iron. Some of the drops contained significant amounts of zinc, bismuth, and rare earth elements. An analysis of the soil, rocks, and burnt wood taken from the landing ground was also performed.
It was noted that the chemical composition was similar to the composition of similar samples taken from the site of the Tunguska event.
The mesh particles were also analyzed. The material of which the particles were composed did not dissolve in potent acids and organic solvents even when exposed to high temperatures for prolonged periods of time. It was discovered that one of the mesh particles was composed of scandium, gold, lanthanum, sodium, and samarium. A different analysis of another mesh particle showed gold, silver, and nickel, but after that particle was heated in a vacuum, the analysis no longer showed these elements; however, molybdenum and rhenium were detected.

The quantity of gold detected in one of the mesh particles translates to 1,100 g per one metric ton of ore. Normally, gold deposits start getting developed when the quantity reaches 4 per one metric ton. There are no gold mines in Dalnegorsk as none of the ores contain this amount of gold.

Cut rhododendron branches from the area.
The death of tissue was caused by some unknown type of radiation.

More samples from the area

The landing ground (more recent image)

Some plants were buried internally, with no external traces of darkening. The depth of destruction is up to 60-70 per cent, with destruction of cellular structures thta was detected with the microscope: in according to AP Kulikova, of Institute of Chemistry FEB USSR Academy of Sciences, it was determined by ultrahigh temperatures.

Totally, were found scattered across the site a little more than 30 g. of glass-like drops. They ranged from 3 to 6 mm. Weight of up to 80 mgr largest conglomerate, consisting of 4 sintered, weighing 850 mgr.

The first attempts to drill them in order to analyze them with a spectral analysis tool had no success. It was impossible to drill even with a diamond tool, their strength was incredibly high. At the Japanese microanalyzer one of them resulted to contain:
cobalt - 0.49 percent, silicon dioxide - 3 percent, tungsten - 2.4 percent.
Not found chromium, nickel, manganese, which are usually for the
production of any marks of steel.
Under the metallographic microscope at this shlife iron on the structure resembled iron, but the results obtained in another microanalyzer showed that the metal composition was magnesium, iron, nickel, lanthanum, Praseodymium, neodim, caesium. And lanthanum content was up to 16 percent, praseodymium to 11 per cent, cesium to 57 per cent, neodymium to 18 percent, and iron and nickel basis and were not found but in very small quantities.

The mesh found in the area had an extremely complex appearance, reminiscent of braided mesh. It, like other materials (lead, alloys), was found only at the crash site, and is the most mysterious of them.
It is flat with a lot of openings and jumpers. It had a number of
interesting properties: not soluble in strong organic solvents and
acids, such as nitric, sulfuric, fluorspar. Atomic absorption analysis
has identified 11 metals: zinc, cobalt, copper, iron, manganese,
silicon, calcium and large quantities of potassium and sodium. In the
presence of oxygen from the air burns at a temperature of the
persistence of forms about 1000 degrees, but in a vacuum withstands up
to 2000 degrees. Checking on superconductivity is negative, but at 120
degrees K, in liquid nitrogen supermagnitnye has properties similar to
meteorites glazing. At the same time behaves in a normal room
conditions as the dielectric, with little up, as semiconductor, and
when up in a vacuum as the conductor of electric current. One of the
samples was subjected to radiation exposure on atomic reactor in Tashkent and analyze neutron activation method:

Were identified the following elements:
scandium - 0.2 percent,
Gold - 10-5 percent,
lanthanum - 1.2 * 10-3 percent,
sodium - 0.9 percent,
samarium -4 * 10-4 per cent.
X-ray and a number of other analyses revealed the existence of organic substances aliphatic and aromatic type, which means some affiliation on its origin from the stump. In 1988, at the X-ray alalize, until up in a vacuum were clearly peaks of gold, silver, nickel and reainiya.
Following up in a vacuum R - 5-10 mm and temperature - 1500 degrees at rentgenogramme missing peaks of gold, silver and nickel, but there were peaks of alpha-titanium, molybdenum.
Soak made on coltan substrate and these elements in a vacuum chamber was not. So far, remains a mystery: how disappeared gold, silver, nickel and molybdenum and emerged alpha-titanium and rhenium?

The group of study, hunted high and low every possible evidence of fallen debris, like i.e. wreckage, but it was clear very soon that nothing anomalous was there but the landing ground: actually, the are was covered by snow, it would have been very easy to spot even the smallest objetc, while the snow surface was unbroken except for the landing ground.
During the last 20 years, Valery Dvuzhilny carefully gathered, classified, made a description of objects, photographs, physical and chemical analysis. He repeated several times some of the analysis in order to keep the results up to date.

Over these 20 years research were conducted on 19 samples in:
Research Institute of Geology and Geophysics (Leningrad, Novosibirsk, Vladivostok), Electric them B.O. Paton (Kiev), Geochemistry and Ghysics Minerals (Kiev), Institute of minerals (DVIMS, Khabarovsk), Geology, Geophysics, Minerals (NIIGGiMS, Irkutsk), NII alloys (Moscow), volcanology (Kamchatka), Research Institute of Chemistry FEB (Vladivostok) etc. , the most modern methods were used - electron microscopy, X-ray, microprobe, materials, isotope etc. and Research wew conducted by 8 Ph.D., and 18 candidates of science (holders of first post-graduate scientific degree).

Samples of the "black glass-like" material from the area, under Japanese scanning electron microscope.

Valery Dvuzhilny, who's a biologist, had a serious approach to this case, and he's always been available to share the documentation, including analysis results, with other researchers and scientists.

Many possible explanations have been provided to the incident so far: a stage of a Soviet missiles launched from Baikonur, a crashed top secret military aircraft, a secret Japanese satellite, and so on.
The launch from Baikonur could be rule straight out, since nothing was launched the day of the incident. After more recent analysis on the Height 611 samples, scientists have identified a "super hard, high-temperature resistant alloy manufactured artificially with some special technology: it's difficult to imagine a possible way to get this kind of structure, its designation, physical composition and other properties.
The Committee on meteorites from Moscow, ruled out the meteorite hypotesis twenty years ago, after analyzing the samples and wintnesses.
Ball lightning are always been rare for the province and were never recorded the last 10 years before the crash.

The white strips are quartz threads: some of them were only 17 micron in diameter, and were made of more thin threads

Sample- black vitreous substance after vacuum melting. The form does
not match the original. Dimensions also changed from the original,
about 1.5 times

A falling spy satellite was also ruled out, not just for the absence of wreckage, but also for the presence of carbide alloy hafnium and tantalum, rare minerals and metals, metal alloys: besides, it's fly path was parallel to the ground.

The question, of course is "what crashed on Height 611"?
The findings of scientists and specialists suggest that the object had a "solid metal case". It was produced artificially by special technology (nobody has been able to find on Earth any analogue alloy). In the fall and the impact on the rock "a metal ball without holes and stainless steel color" destroyed releasing just the samples that Dvuzhilny and his staff were able to recover.

Another interesting detail is that eyewitnesses claimed that the ball for half an hour has made six attempts to takeoff. At the hill top six spots were found magnetized: and the were silica rocks: silica is a nonmagnetic material.

Artist impression of the attempts of takeoff

This fact was confirmed by a group of scientists from Tomsk using a proton magnetometer; besides trees, bushes at the site had traces of radiation injuries; it was found that magnetization was caused by a powerful constant magnetic field: temperatures were generated from 1800 to 3500 degrees Celsius: rocks containing silicon were melted; the object was a source of plasma and created few holes into the stump of wood: so, high temperatures, some unknown radiations source, some unknown high voltage source, some unknown plasma source, some unknown powerful magnetic fields source, some unknown alloys.

Over the years, a great variety of analyses up to the spectral and laser isotope microprobe - at the Russian, and at the Japanese, and French equipment. Apply methods and computers processed the information received. The research was carried out in various scientific research institutes in Russia, England, New Zealand (mathematical calculations of harmonics Captain Kathy Bruce).

The crash at Height 611 is one of the most interesting cases of CE-2: the researcher has always been available to share what was found to the site for analyses: and analyses suggest that despite what has been found suggest in many ways to have been created by some advanced technology, at the status quo, in according to all the scientists who conducted analyses on the samples, no terrestrial technology is known to be able to produce the same results.

Russian newspaper Komsomol'skaya Pravda (NOT english Pravda) in its December 1, 2000 issue published an article about the Dalnegorsk case (NLO svili v Primorje gnezdo). I find this very interesting: in the early 1990s , according to the newspaper, Russian generals from the anti-aircraft forces became concerned about the UFO activity in the area, and contacted local UFO researchers. An exchange of information ensued.

It is newsworthy when a major Russian newspaper mentions such fact (the author actually quoted Valery Dvuzhilni, the chief investigator of the Height 611 UFO crash).

This is a very interesting incident and one I haven't heard of before. Great find

I must say they did some impressive analysis with those samples. Obviously some kind of high tech thing crashed there but what? Aliens or maybe some of our own secret high tech? Makes me wonder...

Excellent thread. S&F

Hi this is a nice read. one o the best i did read for now.
Nice science behind this one also..

tnx for posting this ..

I haven't heard of this case before, and haven't read through your post thouroughly, but I'd just like to say well done on providing numerous images and sources on your information unlike a lot of utter garbage that gets posted on ATS. Thanks again.

If you don't receive applause for your opening post, then I don't know what would.

Interesting thread to say the least! Star for you Mr. Internos

Extremely interesting post. This is the reason you're considered a master.

I will be looking into this further in my free time.

Meanwhile, a S&F with my personal urging for others to do the same. This is the kind of work ATS needs and deserves.

Good Job.

Awsome internos, simply awsome. sorry for the short post but i'm still soaking everything in. This is one the best reports i've ever read

posted on Aug, 2 2008 @ 09:01 PM
I was quite unsure, and still am to what it is.

But when I read the part about it trying to take off again multiple times, it screams intelligence of some sort.

If it's a human made probe, it was possibly remotely controlled. At least what we currently know about "our" technology.

If not, who has the artificial intelligence probes that self destruct when they fail?

Someone is hiding. Is it a human? I have no clue.

Wow. Awesome documentation here. I wish all incidents were as well documented as this one. S&F!

I'll say it again. Wow.

Incredible find and good work Internos!!!

The research is impeccable..

A breathe of fresh air amidst all the trash in Ufology.

Thank you internos. This case is NEW to me and surely many others.

Consistent with reports of craft that seem to drip molten metals. Some new type of propulsion or ET malfunction? The samples seem to be the most compelling part of this to me. Not to discount eyewitness acounts, but physical evidence is always good to have.

The "take back off" behavior doesn't say military to me, that would just draw more attention to it (which it did). That seems more of a "oh crap, let's get out of here before humans see us" kind of thinking.

As far as the metal dripping off of it, seems like that has been going on for a while now, at least the late 40's, going by the Maury Island incident. Not to mention a few others that I've read of.

Well thought out investigation Internos, beautiful as always.

Thanks for this post... very interesting... i've never heard of this one. Can't wait to look up more about it. Thanks again.

I'd like to say THANK YOU to everyone for your nice words: this is the best award one could expect after trying to share something of interesting, as i've humbly tried to do. A peculiarity of this case is that a huge percentage of related data was in russian language, while what was/is available in english was/is narrowed to the narration of the events and a brief description of the analyses and of the samples: so it has been like to discover something of actually new, also for me.
Once again, THANK YOU everyone

I have heard of this but never looked into this, thanks. Didn't have it on my mind til' now.

Not just interesting but strange, I wonder how many of these things are out there. Are they responsible for rare earth elements to be rare in the first place?

What a great thread my friend! this is most exellent work...I never knew about this...This great thread will increase non believers to believers of ufos!

Thanks again Internos

Big star and a Flag!

Great post and top notch research and documentation. well done

Hopefully this will post will dispell the idiot 'anti-research' debunkers that have been ruining every UFO post that has been recently made

this is old news, i've read about this 3 years ago, the most interesting about this case is the compounds,

and the most interesting thing about this, NO diamond compounds found, now why is that ?

there are 3 stories which connect to this one i just dont remember the articals, they are very similar.

in my opinion, this is probably a very high end flight experiment with very high end materiales. and some very rare materiales.

keep digging you will see the connections
