Ghost rockets or UFOs flew over Sweden after WW2…were they aliens?
Mysterious ghost missiles flew over Scandinavia after world war two, but no one was shooting them…
The first reports of the ghost rocket sightings in Scandinavia started in February 1946, in Finland, followed by dozens more in Sweden as well. The reports described blunt-nosed, rocket-like missiles streaking across the daytime sky.
It was just after World War Two, and the initial thought was that one of the neighbouring countries must be testing cruise missiles captured from the Nazi army. But the problem is, that no one was.
Not only that, but it seems that after the war, people were getting pretty good at recognizing the more commonly used flying bombs, like the V1 & V2. But unlike the early cruise missiles of the day, these ghost rockets were blunt tipped not tapered, and sometimes cigar shaped, they lacked any stabilizing fins, and made no sound. They manuevered in uncanny ways and could change direction abruptly.
They seemed to crash land into water quite frequently, but other than underwater craters left deep in the mud and silt, there was never any wreckage or debris as evidence.
The Swedish Army made a formal, technical investigation with a team of experts and their official conclusion was that “These phenomena… cannot be credited to any known culture on Earth.”
The United States Air Force also took a keen interest.
In this Declassified, Top Secret Document, the investigating officer says “For some time we have been concerned by the recurring reports on flying saucers. They cannot be disregarded and must be explained on some basis which is perhaps slightly beyond the scope of our present intelligent thinking.”
