The Voronezh, Russia UFO Landing


One of the most bizarre accounts of an alleged UFO landing occurred in Voronezh, Russia. This case was reported in the United States by the St. Louis Dispatch on October 11, 1989, but its origin was the Russian newspaper TASS. The report recounts the adventures of several young children who claimed to have seen three-eyed aliens with a robot escort. The aliens were said to be about ten foot tall. The craft, according to eyewitness testimony, landed on a public park. Shortly thereafter, the tall aliens appeared, and upon seeing a young boy, one of the aliens shot a type of weapon at him, causing him to vanish before the eyes of the other people around him.

The experience of the witnesses:

On September 27, 1989, at about 6:30 pm (18:30 hrs.), in the industrial city of Voronezh, Russia with a population of about 900,000 inhabitants, young school boys were playing soccer in a public park when they witnessed a pinkish glow preceding the descent of an unusual giant red sphere, about 15 meters in diameter, landing right next to them. About 40 adults waiting for a bus at a nearby bus stop also witnessed the landing. A huge crowd quickly gathered and as they peered through a hatch that opened, they observed a burly ten foot tall entity with a small head and “three luminous eyes” filling the hatch, clad in silvery overalls and bronze-colored boots and wearing a disk on its chest. 

The three luminous eyes were described as having the outer two whitish and the middle one slightly above and reddish. The middle eye was pupil-less and was swiveling as if scanning the terrain. The huge humanoid figure then closed the hatch. The UFO came lower, brushed against a poplar tree, which bent and stayed in that position. While hovering at about one and a half meters, the object extended four supports and landed gently.

The entity and two others like it emerged with a heavy gait, accompanied by something resembling a robot, with push buttons on its chest. One of the entities adjusted something on the robot’s chest, causing it to move in a mechanical way. The aliens were said to have walked around the park, accompanied by the menacing robot, examining the ground and appearing to take soil samples.

The aliens seemed to communicate with each other, and activated the robot with a touch. One entity made sounds which seemed to be orders, and from its chest came a beam of light that delineated on the ground a number of luminous rectangles, about 30 cm x 50 cm. These faded after a short while.

During the incident, one of the boys screamed with fear, but when one of the entities looked at him, the boy instantly fell silent, froze, and was unable to move. The entity’s eyes seemed to be emitting light. Onlookers started crying and screaming by the terror, prompting the UFO, the entities, and the robot to vanished on the spot.

According to the report, about five minutes later, the UFO and the entities reappeared. The alien had an object similar to a pistol - a tube about 20 inches long, which it pointed at an unidentified 16-year-old boy, making him disappear. The alien went back inside the sphere, which then took off. At the same time, the boy reappeared.

The spacecraft left a circular, 20 meters wide depression on the ground, with 4 more minor 15-30 cm wide, 4-25 cm deep holes. Another hole, 25 m wide and 2.7 m deep was found nearby where the humanoids took soil samples. Following some sources, the track featured an intense magnetic field and 2 of the 4 holes there was a much higher amount of gamma radiation.

Several drawings were made by some of the children who supposedly witnessed the events of Voronezh. A couple of these are included here on this page. One of the drawings showed the Cyrillic alphabet character “zhe” on the side of the UFO. TASS listed three witnesses’ names, all of whom were youngsters.

Voronezh residents interviewed later claimed they had observed this UFO not just during the above incident but also many times on September 21, 23, 29 and October 2, between 6 and 9 PM. Some of these incidents involved a different entity described as small, with grayish-green face and blue overcoat resembling a loose raincoat.


A group of international researchers investigated the claims of the witnesses. They concluded that multiple witnesses independently did come forward, therefore could not be a hoax perpetrated by the Soviet government. The children and other eyewitnesses of the abnormal phenomenon were questioned by police and journalists. There were no discrepancies in the description of the sphere itself or the actions of the aliens. Moreover, all the children who became witnesses to this event are still afraid, even now after all these years.
The Voronezh landing remains one of the unsolved mysteries in the history of ufology.

Although there have been many unexplained sightings in the town of Lajas, the situation there has been hyped by the amount of lies and exaggeration by a group of so-called, "ufologists" who ignore other areas of Puerto Rico to promote tourism in Lajas. That was evident when my wife and my daughter confronted a terrifying experience in the town of Aguada with extraterrestrials and that group of charlatans refused our plea for help. Of course, if it happened in Lajas they would have jumped on the opportunity for fame and tourism for that town. Those hoaxes and lies were approved and sanctioned by the then mayor of that town who named route 303 "The extraterrestrial route". The idea of building an "UFOport" (ovnipuerto), “la llorona sightings" and the biggest hoax of them all, "that a UFO crashed there" all this could only be found in a science fiction novel.
