Angels Seen By Soviet Astronauts

Angels Seen By Soviet Astronauts

One of the rumors on the Internet regarding Angels, is Soviet Cosmonauts witnessed, “real” Angels in Space. As a result of many countries, removing the veil of secrecy, regarding UFO and other unexplained phenomenon, the following story has been making its rounds throughout the Internet. It is very difficult to validate any of these stories because we must have faith in the integrity of the media. We also must keep in mind,  these are the same media executives who green-lighted a story on Britney Spears, because she stepped out of a limo with no “drawers” (for those of you who do not know, this is slang for panties) on!

So if we are to trust countries like Belgium, Brazil, and New Zealand, who have released all of their classified UFO documents to the public. Why not give the Soviets the benefit of the doubt? This story broke earlier this year,  but I would be remiss if I did not add this to our Angel section!  Basically the story has been told  like this.

Salyut 7

The Cosmonauts were orbiting the Earth, in a Soviet Space Station, christened the “Salyut 7”. This space station was situated in low earth orbit and lasted from April 1982 to February 1991. The year of the “Angel” sightings was 1985. The crew for the particular mission was directed to carry out several medical experiments.

On the 155 day of their mission, a mysterious orange mist appeared around the Space Station, and the following statements were made by Oleg Atkov, Vladimir Solevev and Leonid Kizim:

“What we saw were seven giant figures in the form of humans, but with wings and mist-like halos as in the classic depiction of angels.”

They said the Angels followed them for about 10 minutes.  They had peaceful expressions on their faces and even smiled at them! They were described as being gigantic (80 feet tall) and having the wing span of a 747.  The Angels simply disappeared, but this was not the end of this encounter.  Almost 2 weeks had (12 days) past when other Cosmonauts arrived for the next phase of medical experiments.

They were Svetlana Savitskaya, Igo Volk, and Vladimir Dzhanibevok,  and they too allegedly witnessed the Angel experience.   This is what they allegedly reported on the experience.  It sounds fascinating and mysterious to say the least.


“They were glowing and we were truly overwhelmed. There was a great orange light,and through it, we could see the figures of seven angels. They were smiling as though they shared a glorious secret,but within a few minutes,they were gone, and we never saw them again.”

I must say this statement adds a flair for the dramatic,  because I have no point of reference, for how someone looks while sharing a glorious secret.  I have seen how a person looks in Poker, holding a Royal Flush, but never an Angel. This is the basis of the story traipsing around the Internet.  There is an intriguing element to this story, if you look at the numbers of God.  I do not want to turn this into a Louis Farrakhan math lesson, but take a look at this:

The number seven has deep spiritual significance. It has been held sacred by the Hebrews and other Semite peoples since the dawn of time. It represents perfection and holiness. It is used throughout the Scriptures and in this sense is the Almighty’s Number.

“777”  also symbolizes God and Perfection and when God is telling us through His number, His plan is complete.

The first “7” I encountered, while writing this article, was “Salyut 7” has a  “7”.

Next if you count the number of characters in “Salyut 7” you get “7”

The total number of angels appearing to the crew was “7”

What is the probability, of a “story” about Angels,  to also be marked with God’s number, “777”.


I do not know,  but if you are math wizard please get back to me on this!  This does make the story a bit more intriguing, no?

Now when you bring in Scripture from the Book of Revelation this story gets more attractive.

Revelation 8:2

 2 And I saw the seven angels who stand before God, and seven trumpets were given to them.

As you can see seven angels are replete throughout the Book of Revelation. And the Cosmonauts happened to see 7 Angels while working in Space.  Was this to let the Truth out in the “Last Days”?  What would be an excellent follow-up story is to find out how this affected the Spiritual lives of the Cosmonauts!  I am sure my life would be forever changed if I encountered 80 foot tall Angels, but I digress!

Here is another quote from the Bible concerning 7 angels:

Revelation 8:6

The Trumpets

 6 Then the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared to sound them.

To me this is the best one because it proves seven Angels roll around in a posse following the orders of  The Most High:

Revelation 16:1

The Seven Bowls of God’s Wrath

 1 Then I heard a loud voice from the temple saying to the seven angels, “Go, pour out the seven bowls of God’s wrath on the earth.”

So quite possibly this story is true or it has been fabricated to do what? For what, to add credence to the validity of the Bible?
I do not know if this is true or not,   but the number 777,  sure has me thinking,  it just might be.
