The size of the object was difficult to determine due to its intense brilliance. The lights of the object were alternating blue, green, red, and orange, and were arranged in a square pattern. He really couldn’t see its shape well because it was so bright and was flashing multiple colors in sequence at a high rate of speed blending the colors together. Later he identified it as being a very bright diamond shaped object.
The left side of the instrument panel (the weapons panel) was deactivated, disarmed and all instrumentation lights were turned off. Jafari believes that in the heat of battle with the UFO, it sent a massive volt of electro-magnetic energy toward his plane temporarily disabling the onboard electronics, including the navigation equipment, avionics and weapons systems.
Then he realized something unexpected was about to unfold. As he descended for his approach to Mehrabad Airport, he saw another small object chasing his jet from behind. On his final approach, he looked over his shoulder and observed the object descending toward the desert floor, lighting up the sandy field so bright as if it were daylight.
