Go Back Report # 1504




(From UFO Research of Finland, Third

Quarter 1981 Quarterly Report)


   On July 31, 1981, two 35-year-old vacationing men were traveling toward Lieksa, Finland, in their motor boat. At 8:40 p.m. they were passing the Vaaraniemi Cape when they saw a black sphere in the sky with one large light and several smaller ones around it. The black object, with two lights on it and covered with "fog," then approached the stern of the boat.

   One of the men felt paralyzed and couldn't move his head, but he continued to talk with his companion. Then the object left. The men found that they were not sitting at the same locations in the boat as they had been when the sighting started. Despite strong water currents and wind, the boat was still near the Cape. Looking at their watches, they discovered that it was 4:10 a.m. on the following morning. They could not account for the seven lost hours.

   Afterwards they suffered from shaking hands, nightmares, and disrupted sense of balance. Two attempts to hypnotize the men failed. A check established that the phenomenon was not a Russian rocket launch, and investigation is continuing.
