UFOs and the cold war in the history of the dead lake of Penza
The “dead lake” of Penza is one of the scariest locations of Russia. Perfectly round, it seems that it has been used during the cold war to bury overdue chemical munitions.
The destruction was obtained by means of underwater explosions at a depth of 4-6 meters. But on the origins of the lake other voices circulate involving a UFO.
A dead lake because of chemical weapons
There is a creepy location in Russia and is not the Molebka's triangle, but the dead lake of Penza, near the remains of the toxic weapon destruction facility of Leonidovka, by now disarmed.
Penza lake is closed and with no drainage, so currently it doesn't expose to danger nearby environment, also because the banks are strengthened with protective embankments and sandbags.
But Penza's inhabitants tell different and much more disturbing story: the perfectly round shape of the lake would be due to the landing and following take-off of an alien UFO.
A night the sky set on fire
Witnesses interviewed by the local newspaper, the Penza Post, referred that in the '50s one night was heard a terrible noise and a blinding shine expanded from all directions.
They thought to the explosion of the nearby military chemical plant, but it was seen to come down from the sky above the forest an enormous spaceship, with incandescent throws from the inferior part.
The forest caught fire and underlying earth transformed it in a strange mass of dust or ash. The giant flying saucer landed without any problems, while the time seemed to freeze.
Nobody was seen to go out anybody of the mysterious object until the spaceship, perfectly smooth, come back to eject what seemed to be throws of plasma from the inferior unloadings, quickly regaining altitude to then disappear in the dark sky.
Soviets interdicted the area
Many years Penza's inhabitants have gone to see the deep hole that was formed where the flying saucer was landed, perfectly round shape and with absolutely smooth edges, which with the time began to be filled with water.
Then the Soviet authorities began to send away the people, recommending to everybody not to visit the place anymore and not to speak of it, while they started to circulate rumors regarding high levels of radioactivity in the area, perhaps because of a nuclear engine used by the UFO.
The dead lake it's almost out of reach
The story regarding the dead lake of Penza is fed by the fact that it is almost impossible to reach the lake's shore: all the roads and the forest paths are covered by trees and bushes, while the banks of the road Penza-Zolotarevka are boarded up by military barriers.
The lake has surely an artificial origin, btw officially it is not due to a UFO but to the extraction of peat in the first half of the 20th century. The aerial vision of the lake by Google Earth shows black water, without any traces of life.
The few that succeeded in venturing through the forest surrounding the dead lake in these years reported having experienced an “inexplicable and animal” fear, perceiving the proximity to a mysterious and worrying artificial object.
Who knows if and when we will be able to get more official information regarding the story of this tenebrous dead lake.
