The Soviet space station Salyut-7 had witnessed the bizarre event, to say the least which actually resulted in the team being forcibly brought in for psychological testing to ensure they weren’t compromised by any kind of space bacteria. .
The story begins with Leonid Kizim, Oleg Atkov, Vladimir Solovyov, Svetlana Savitskaya, Igor Volk, and Vladimir Yannibekov as they were going about their business trying to do their daily chores on the space station when suddenly it happened.
A huge, strange orange cloud has appeared out of nowhere, essentially engulfing the entire space station within it.
Then suddenly, before they could react, a blinding light took over. When the light disappeared, the crew reportedly ran into seven enormous angelic beings on their space shuttle.
They were all about 20 meters tall and had huge luminous halos on their heads. From their backs, they also reported seeing huge wings and, although threatening, they couldn’t help but stare in awe at the strange beings.
They disappeared as soon as they surfaced and the crew came to their senses soon after.
They rushed home and tried to tell their story, but despite having passed all the psychological tests they could put their hands on the crew on Earth, they still didn’t believe it.
But they are not the only ones who have seen them, as John Pratchett also reported seeing angelic beings through the Hubble telescope. He also saw his white city floating in space on December 26, 1994.
