On May 20, 2014 Russian Strategic Rocket Forces carried out a successful launch of a Topol/SS-25 rocket that was used to test "new combat payload for future intercontinental ballistic missile." The rocket was launched at 21:08 Moscow Standard Time (17:08 Universal Coordinated Time - UTC) from the Kapustin Yar test site toward the Sary Shagan test site in Kazakhstan.

In Figs. 1-3 one can see the bright images in the sky at 17:12-17:13 CUT detected by Aragats Sky monitor. We idebtify this images as an evidence of Topol launch. The Aragats sky monitor is located at Aragats high-altitude research station of the Yerevan Physics Institute and is used for investigation of high-energy phenomena in terrestrial atmosphere. Namely, recording thunderclouds simultaneously with registration by other station facilities huge fluxes of  high energy particles.

The Aragats Sky Monitor gives you a live video view of the entire sky, day or night, rain or shine. The All Sky Cam is always on, always providing live full color video. You can see:

Sun, Moon, planets, stars, aurora, Milky Way & zodiacal light.

Clouds, their type and moving directions, precipitation, lightning, rainbows.
