Astronauts See Angels

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


It was the 155th day of a Russian space flight, in July 1984, when the cosmonauts on the Soviet space station, Salyut 7, reported strange lights and beings. Commander Oleg Atkov and cosmonauts Vladmir Solovyov and Leonid Kizim reported to ground control that the space station was completely surrounded and bathed in a spectacular orange light. It seemed that the light entered  from outside, from space, and came through an absolutely opaque wall.


For a short time, the light was so brilliant it blinded the astronauts. Not knowing what happened, when their vision returned, each of them looked out the spacecraft windows for the cause of the blinding light.   They scanned the craft looking for some type of explosion or fire, as the Salyut 7 had suffered previous fires, but what the cosmonauts saw was more incomprehensible than the orange light.



Incredibly they reported seeing the faces of seven angels who were hovering just outside the space station. They told ground control their faces and bodies looked human but these beings had wings and misty-like halos. The angels kept up with the movement and speed of the space station for 10 minutes before disappearing as quickly as they had come.


Being logical, the cosmonauts talked this matter over among themselves and agreed that because they had been in space for so long, they were probably were suffering from the stress of long term space travel and were more than likely having some kind of group hallucination.

The cosmonauts  reassured themselves that  they had gone temporarily insane and had experienced  a group hallucination that was the only sensible explanation of what happened.


After spending another 11 days on the space station, on day 167, the crew was then joined by three more of their colleagues from the Soyuz T-12 space craft, Svetlana Savitskaya, Igor Volk and Vladimir Dzhanibekov.  A short while after entering the space station the crew once again reported to ground control that the space station was bathed in a blinding orange light. Again when the crew looked out the portals they saw angelic beings. They were the size of an “airliner,” commented the cosmonauts. The incident was initially hushed up in the old Soviet Union and the crew was cautioned not to speak of the event publically.

All six astronauts reported seeing “a smiling angel.” The incident could  be attributed to the the fatigue over  a long space voyage, if it were only about the first crew. However, this explanation does not fit for the second crew – a meeting with the angels took place shortly after their arrival at the station. So the second crew just confirmed the observation of the Angels.


The six cosmonauts who looked out the portholes all  reported seeing seven angels all resembling humans but with wings. Each angel was reported to have been as big as a jet airliner and each of them had a smile of their face as if trying to share some kind of knowledgeable secret with the cosmonauts. Again keeping up with the movements and speed of the space station for a short while they later just simply disappeared.


Some believe that the Angels (in the Vedas – the Gandharvas, the Yasuni) live in a different spatial continuum (parallel world ) which may come into contact with our world.

Longterm stress could certainly explain what had happened to the first crew members, however; it was only a short while after the arrival of the second crew that the angels revealed themselves again. How could the second crew be suffering from the stress of long term space travel as they had just arrived. No viable explanation has been offered as to why the second sighting occurred.

After this strange phenomena occurred the crew went on to set a record of 237 days in space . After the crew left the Salyut 7, it was lost in space in 1985 and began to drift. When recovered, they found it completely dead of all electrical charge and covered in ice but after diagnosing the problems they were able to fix the vessel.


Salyut 7 was last inhabited in 1986 by the crew of Soyuz T-15, who ferried equipment from Salyut 7 to the new Mir space station. Between 19 and 22 August 1986, engines on Kosmos 1686 boosted Salyut 7 to a record-high mean orbital altitude of 475 km to forestall reentry.


It underwent uncontrolled reentry with Kosmos 1686 on 7 February 1991, reentering over Argentina, scattering much of its debris over the town of Capitan Bermudez.


The very first man in space had what might be considered a mystical experience or fantastic dream.    In the first manned spaceflight from the Baikonur Cosmodrome  in April 1961 ground control lost contact with the first man in space.   Yuri Gagarin twice briefly fell silent and did not answer calls. Gagarin could not recall if he passed out or fainted involuntarily.  During a visit to a therapist to check his overall mental well-being, he was subjected to hypnotic regression in which he was able to recall the period in which he blacked out during the flight of Vostok-1.  He first saw a head, then a person floating in front of him.  Gagarin did not feel fear, but could not move his arms or his legs.  Then he heard a voice in his head, it said, “Do not worry, everything will be fine. You’ll come back to Earth.”  Then the person vanished.   Some researchers believe cosmic radiation and its affect on the human mind may be responsible for some of the visions experienced by astronauts.

It is rumored that these very angelic creatures often accompanied U.S. Space Shuttle flights, butt such information in the United States is classified as “secret.”


Look at this breathtaking object recently caught by the NASA/SOHO photos makes us think that only two possibilities could explain this sighting. First, this could be a UFO in the shape of an angel headed directly into the sun…probably harvesting its energy. Second, it is an angel who’s size would be bigger that twice Earths size. What they call a light being which may live in or be part of the sun itself. Also note that it leaves a trail behind it which tells us the direction it was traveling at the time of the photo, writes Scott C. Waring, author of UFO Sightings Daily


Here are a couple of Unidentified Objects in this photo taken during the STS 115 Shuttle Mission. The first object is red and glowing above the space station while the second is a ghost like object. These objects can be found in the Original NASA photo click here…

Photo by NASA and here is the caption next to the photograph : STS115-318-026 (17 Sept. 2006) — Backdropped by the blackness of space and Earth’s horizon, the International Space Station moves away from Space Shuttle Atlantis. Earlier the STS-115 and Expedition 13 crews concluded six days of cooperative work onboard the shuttle and station. Undocking of the two spacecraft occurred at 7:50 a.m. (CDT) on Sept. 17, 2006. Atlantis left the station with a new, second pair of 240-foot solar wings, attached to a new 17.5-ton section of truss with batteries, electronics and a giant rotating joint. The new solar arrays doubled the station’s onboard power when their electrical systems were brought online during the next shuttle flight in December 2006.

      Pane Andov has had very personal contact with these beings. The part that we call wings are some type of energy field. He refers to them taking him in their ship and modifying his body for more freedom of movement in the astral. It is said that the highest density that uses some form of ship, is 6th density and these beings could be from there. I have heard references to 15 densities, with those at the top, creating universes to maintain the balance. Also there are references to seven groups of universes, with one main group of universes above the seven. They say that Jesus is the head of one of the seven groups. We sure don’t know much but let’s keep trying because we have eternity to find out. Peace is our natural state.

      Angels have been seen in space by cosmonauts on other occasions as well.

      Angels travel at the speed of thought, meaning they can go anywhere in the universe instantly with no passage of time.

      Angels view the universe as a playground radiant with joyous light and freedom.

      There are nine choirs of angels: Angels, Archangels, Seraphim, Cherubim, Principalities, Powers, Dominions, Thrones and Virtues. The choir designated by God as custodians of the cosmos are Virtues.

      So what. Astronauts from both Russia and America claimed they have left Earth protect magnetic shield and survived the horrendous amounts of radiation, while travelling in a foil covered tin can. They’d also have people believe they used magic film that doesn’t fog when exposed to radiation as well. Basically their word is as reliable as a pedophile preachers. :wink:

      Divine or extraterrestrial? When you venture into space, there’s no telling what you might encounter. The Allies of Humanity Briefings talk about these phenomenon are impacting the future of our world. You can read them online:

    • Mayhem

      I for one appreciate the contributions of Pix.

      We are, however, polar opposites in our manner of arriving at truth. I do offer Pix this observation regarding his seminal reliance of history. Is it not said that to the victor resides the privilege of writing history. It seems timely to remind us all that history can only provide evidence and not automatically fact.

      I suspect that Pix is not near as theistic as he [?] makes out; however i care little either way. That Pix challenges me to inquire and seek knowledge is all the purpose that is needed for his opinions to have value.

      “The choir designated by God as custodians of the cosmos are Virtues.”

      Which god?, not the Christian one, the concept of angels is 100% pagan in origin. Early Christianity plagiarised all pagan symbology during the dark ages. Angels depicted playing harps is Greek in origin and a reference to ‘the music of the spheres’, (the frequencies planets resonate at). It is about astrology. Other depictions of humans or other carictures/totems with wings are a pagan allegory for wisdom, foresight. The form it takes is a reference to it’s context. :wink:

    • Louis

      My data regarding angels derives from Holy Scriptural prophets and from the great theologian St. Thomas Aquinas, known as “the angelic doctor of Divinity.”

      They are worth listening to. You are not. You are an uneducated negative nobody with nothing worthwhile to say.

      However, I made a slight mistake in my earlier post. The angelic choir I called “Dominions” should have read “Dominations.”

    • Pix

      The so called data you are referring to originates from paganism. Christianity is a made up religion created by the worst insane despot the world has ever known, Roman emperor Constantine, 325 CE at the earliest. A rare survivor of the plague that killed 50% of the population and 99% of people who caught it, scared his brain and left him completely insane.

      ALL the claimed supporting evidence for the existence of Jesus and early Christianity has been proven to be 4th century forgeries. To make matters worse there are massive amounts of evidence proving it originates from far older pagan religions.

      Calling people silly names is very puerile, is that your sole defence?

    • Joerg Klaemt

      Intelligence isd measured by knowledge not hear say!
      Trying to sound intelligent,makes you look even more stupid. Lol

    • danielreyes

      Seeing as the black plague struck europe in the 1340′s makes pix’s entire argument invalid and now we know that he/she makes up garbage. Any garbage in fact to discredit anything associated with christianity, as if most do not know that anyway.

      To doubt all things possible is to discredit God being infinite, alpha and the omega. To discredit angels or interdimensional beings of pure energy is even more naive. What is a soul then but harnessed energy all belonging to God?

      God bless and may peace be within

    • Louis

      Either you can’t spell, or you are from Britain where they spell the word “defense” as “defence.”

      In any event, I find your posts abhorrent. Plus you recite fiction and call it “history.”

      Emperor Constantine insane? Good grief, you are out to lunch.

    • Awesome McCool

      He doesn’t mention the Black Plague, he mentions the plaque that killed 50% of Constantine’s Roman population. There has been more than 1 plague in history.

    • Pix

      “Seeing as the black plague struck europe in the 1340′s makes pix’s entire argument invalid”

      That is moronic seeing as that is not the plague I was referring to. The first plague took place c 300 CE. Unlike you I don’t make unsubstantiated claims and call it truth and insult with intent to destroy other people who disagree. I’m not a liar like you religious people, I have far better morals and integrity.

    • Pix

      What you mean stupid as compared to denying all actual evidence, history, scientific discovery, logic, kindergarten maths and common sense in favour of believing something that has not so much as a single scrap of evidence, and dished up as faith?

      Stupid is as stupid does IMAFO. :wink:

    • Pix

      Except the plague didn’t just kill 50% of Constantine’s Roman population, also the far east ie China, India, the middle east, Africa, and Europe. Yes there was more than one plague, that was the first one.



      “Unlike you I don’t make unsubstantiated claims and call it truth and insult with intent to destroy other people who disagree. I’m not a liar like you religious people, I have far better morals and integrity.”

      THERE IT IS.

      That is the BIGGEST lie ever told on Before It’s News.

      Congratulations Pix. You win a biscuit.

    • danielreyes

      “Rodney Stark’s book, the Rise of Christianity, argues that one of the main reasons for the success of Early Christianity was the Christian emphasis on caring for the sick. During the late Roman period there were a number of devastating plagues: the Antonine Plague (165-180 AD), the Plague of Cyprian (251-270 AD), and the Plague of Justinian (541–542 AD). These periods coincide with some of the most prolific growth of Christianity.”

      First plague in 300ad you say? I can’t even find one in the time frame of constantine and your link is blank for me. You did say it killed 50% of the population and I assumed 1340 plague but my apologies. I still can’t find evidence for your claim though.

      God bless and may peace be within

    • Pix

      Instead of just making idle claims and calling people names, why don’t you prove your point with evidence. Oh dear me, is that because you don’t have any?

      I’m always up for an evidence based argument, always will and always have. The difference is I don’t need to lie because I’m quoting historical evidence and facts. Unlike the religious, I have no agenda to justify a belief in unsubstantiated dark age superstitious codswallop by calling people liars without checking the facts.

      As for winning a biscuit, actually I won this years troll award for annoying the most religious people with the truth. :lol:

    • Pix

      Try clicking the link I posted. Or was too much physical work.

    • Pix

      Type this into the search. “From Constantine to Charlemagne: an archaeology of Italy, AD 300-800 – “

    • Pix

      Here’s a scholarly documentary on Constantine.



      See if you can let this sink in: The machinations of Constantine and the Roman Empire have NO BEARING at all on the written Word. I know this is something which is difficult for you to comprehend, for without Constantine, the Roman Empire and Greek Mythology, you have nothing with which to besmirch the New Testament.

      I’ll say it again – I care not what you have to say about these things. They have nothing to do with what is written. If you were interested in honesty half as much as you are infatuated with Bible bashing, you would be able to see this fact clearly.

      Each time I have offered you substantive resistance, you disappear. I am not interested in repeating myself ad nauseam for nothing.

      Your motive is not pure. You have an agenda. Therefore, you are dishonest.

    • Mayhem

      This steam powered blog site sure has it’s frustrations.

      How did my post that was intended as an open comment (ie the “reply” function was not used) how did it end up near the middle of this thread? Should it not have been at the bottom of this page? At least until subsequent posts were placed below mine. For that matter where will this little whinge end up I wonder given that this time I “replied” to Pix’s post with link.

    • Joerg Klaemt

      @ Muad Dib

      Forget PIX ,you can’t reason with a Moron that know everything about nothing.
      Just follow his Posts on every other Subjects and you know why!
      He is an ashiest and in the end he will get what he deserves.



      I’ve actually seen Pix admit that she is an enemy of the Most High and one who believes that Satan is the “good guy”.

      Now I am curious to know whether this precludes her from being honest about evidence. Are all Satanists simply liars and deceivers? Can there be an honest enemy of the Almighty? If not, then at the heart of “atheism” (which is really Satanism) is nothing more than an aversion to the Truth. Can they see Him clearly and they hate Him still? Or do they simply not recognize Him. I am unsure of whether total darkness exists in mankind. There may just be confusion and willful ignorance. Simple bitterness may lead to naked rebellion. I think once they see, they will all repent and be turned — but I’m not sure. There may yet be invincible hatred for the Almighty. That’s why I carry on with Pix the way I do. I have no illusions about reasoning with her.

      There’s more going on than you think. Despite what she is, she can still be learned from. Who are the real enemies of the Almighty and who are simply the lazy thinkers…

      That is the question.

    • Joerg Klaemt
