Russian Satellite Registers Unknown Physical Phenomena in Earth's Atmosphere - Institute

MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 11th February, 2019) An ultraviolet telescope installed on the Russian satellite Lomonosov, which was launched to the Earth's orbit in 2016, has registered light "explosions" in the planet's atmosphere, whose physical nature has not been explained so far, the director of the Research Institute of Nuclear Physics at the Russian State University said in an interview with Sputnik.

"With the help of the telescope, we have obtained even more important results than we expected. It looks like we have encountered new physical phenomena ... We do not yet know their physical nature ... Fore example, during Lomonosov's flight at an altitude of several dozen kilometers, we have registered several times a very powerful 'explosion' of light. But everything was clear underneath it, no storms, no clouds," Mikhail Panasyuk said.
