JANUARY 20, 1978, MOSCOW, MOSCOW, RUSSIA, A FATHER AND HIS SON:

Brief summary of the event and follow-up:

In his catalogue, Albert Rosales published a story that seem to come from a Russian UFO website created in 2005, claiming that in Moscow, Russia, on January 20, 1978, at 05:00 a.m., a father and son woke up like they usually to walk the dog.

We are told the dog's behavior was uncommon from the start as he hid under the bed and refused to come up. It was necessary to drag him by the collar and then it obediently began to run with the men along Korolev Street. Suddenly, the dog stopped in its tracks and began to howl. Both men also stopped and noticed, standing about 15 meters away, a strange figure about 3 meters in height. The figure was dressed in overalls reflecting the moonlight, it stood still slightly moving its hands. The head appeared to be directly connected to its shoulders without a visible neck. On its back, it had an apparatus resembling a large oxygen tank.

The figure then began to move has hands slow motion pointing towards the witnesses. Even though it was cold, both men felt a cold wind flow in their directions and a feeling of horror overwhelmed them. Suddenly the dog rushed towards the strange figure and both men heard an audible high-pitched tone, and immediately, after placing its arms straight on the side of its body the figure rose up straight into the air and disappeared from sight.

Narratives:

[Ref. ar1:] ALBERT ROSALES:

Albert Rosales indicates in his catalogue that in Moscow, Russia, on January 20, 1978, at 0500 a.m., a father and son awoke like they usually did to the traditional morning run with their dog. From the start, the dog's behavior was uncommon; he hid under the bed and refused to come up. It was necessary to drag him by the collar and then it obediently began to run with the men along Korolev Street. Suddenly the dog stopped in its tracks and began to howl. Both men also stopped and noticed standing about 15 meters away a strange figure about 3 meters in height. The figure was dressed in overalls, which reflected the moonlight; it stood still slightly moving its hands. The head appeared to be directly connected to its shoulders without a visible neck. On its back it had an apparatus resembling a large oxygen tank. The figure then began to move has hands slow motion pointing towards the witnesses. Even though it was cold, both men felt a cold wind flow in their directions and a feeling of horror overwhelmed them. Suddenly the dog rushed towards the strange figure and both men heard an audible high-pitched tone, and immediately, after placing its arms straight on the side of its body the figure rose up straight into the air and disappeared from sight.

Albert Rosales indicates that the source is "UFOZONE Russia."

Points to consider:

"Ufozone Russia" seems to be the ufozone.ru website, created September 6, 2005.

The story does not offer much to deem it credible; on the contrary it is quite typical of the large amout of such stories of unclear origin and deprived of the information that would allow verification that are made up by the sensationalist magazines of the country and eventually appear on the web without any further investigation.
