Created: 2012-08-03 23:15 EST
Dozens are camping out in Russia at the world’s oldest and deepest lake to search the skies for UFOs.
On Tuesday, these UFO enthusiasts set out to Lake Belial on what they have dubbed the 'Trans-Eurasian UFO-Search expedition,’ drawn to the area due to a history of sightings by locals.
"Here, in 1958 there was an TU-154 airplane crash. There were some reports from the locals that a UFO pursued the aircraft until it reached Baikal waters right here. And there were frequent reports of UFO activity around Baikal. So this is the reason why we decided to meet here.”
Members of the expedition are employing video cameras and their own homemade devices in their efforts.
“This is a radiation warning device, and our new device is made in Irkutsk, so far there is only one copy, - it's a universal abnormal activity detector. It measures infrared emission, electric fields and magnetic fields. (With this device) we can monitor the sky, the objects there and can estimate them depending on the levels of the indicators.”
The search has been a cross-country trip, beginning in July on Russky Island in the Sea of Japan. Anastasia and Andrey Chernobrov believe they have already captured a UFO on camera.
“At first the object did not move, but it had a peculiar glow, flashing with different colours - blue, red, yellow, green... We started watching it, and a few minutes afterwards the object began to move chaotically, not like a helicopter, or a plane, or any other terrestrial machine which can fly."
The expedition will continue west next to Novosibirsk; their final destination is scheduled to be Moscow, arriving in September.
