|Height 611 UFO Incident
Alleged UFO Crash in Dalnegorsk, Primorsky Krai, USSR
Where American scientists turn a deaf ear to extraterrestrial research,
numerous foreign nations do not, and now they open their doors to
cameras. Investigation on Tunguska blast, height 611 and South Korea's
|Height 611 UFO incident refers to an
alleged UFO crash in Dalnegorsk, Primorsky Krai, USSR, on January 29th,
Height 611 (also known as Mount Izvestkovaya) is a hill located on
the territory of the town.
A reddish ball was
noticed by the inhabitants of the town at around 8 PM on that date.
Eye-witnesses say that the ball was about the size of a half of the
The ball was flying parallel to the ground; there
were no sounds accompanying the flight. It was later determined that the
speed of the flying ball was approximately 15 m/s (34 mph), and that it
was hovering about 700-800 meters above the ground.
ball reached Height 611, it started to decline and then fell down onto
the hill. All witnesses but one say there was no sound when the ball
reached the ground. The process of the fall was described differently by
Some said the ball fell down with a flash and was not
visible after that; others claimed the ball was hovering above the hill
giving light of varying intensity as it was going up and down.
The light given by the ball was described by some as a
forest fire which lasted for approximately one hour.
Three days after
the incident, a group of ufologists led by Valery Dvuzhilny climbed the
hill. They discovered a landing ground 2x2 m in size (other sources
indicate the size of the landing ground was 3x3 m).
The ground looked like it was affected by very high
temperatures. The rocks on the landing ground were covered with a black
film, and remains of a burnt tree were found within the landing ground.
The remains were not typical for a forest fire. Some of the rocks had
drops of silvery metal, which were later determined to be lead.
The type of lead found on Height 611 was different from the lead found
in local lead deposits. Also, black glass-like drops and mesh particles
were found on the site.
In all, approximately 70 g of lead, 5 g of mesh
particles, and 40 g of black drops were discovered. The radiation level
on the landing ground was normal.
The group took pictures of the site
using two different cameras; however, the film later developed as blank.

Drops of silvery metal had been
found, which consisted mainly of lead, silicon, and iron. Some of the
drops contained significant amounts of zinc, bismuth, and rare earth
elements. "Mesh particles" were also recovered, one of which consisted
of scandium, gold, lanthanum, sodium, and samarium.

naturally occurring materials in the Dalnegorsk region. An analysis of

Height 611 UFO - Sightings
The Dalnegorsk incident was covered by the Sightings
television program on April 3rd, 1995. Director Tod Mesirow visited the
site, spoke to witnesses, and also to some of the scientists involved in
According to Mesirow, "Russian analysis of metal fragments recovered
from the crash site say the metal is not man-made manufacture, but is
from somewhere else."
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
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. After that particle was heated in a vacuum, the analysis no
longer showed these elements; however, molybdenum and rhenium were
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
Similar flying balls were detected over the territory of Dalnegorsky,
Kavalerovsky District, Olginsky, and Terneysky District of Primorsky
Krai in November 1987. One of the balls was noticed above the Height 611
illuminating the ground on the peak of the hill.
descriptions of these balls given by witnesses match the descriptions of
the UFO that crashed on Height 611 in 1986. A claim of a UFO landing on
Height 611 was also made in 1989.
