@Dilandu There were a few incidents like this on the american side as well. in october of 1960 the radar equipment at Thule airbase showed what appeared to be a massive russian attack.. NORAD went on alert, but held back a response because the Then premier of the soviet union, Nikita Khrushchev, was in New York for a UN summit. they wisely figured the soviets wouldn't nuke their own leader. turned out the system was detecting *the moon* as it rose over the horizon in the radar's field of detection.
