Observations of unidentified submarine objects in Norway           

       At 10 one evening just before Christmas 1959, Lorentz Johnsen saw a dark, silent object--which he described as looking like a small bus with a number of windows along its side---fly slowly by at an altitude of 150 meters. It was heading in the direction of the Namsen Fjord. It descended to about 50 meters, grew fiery red, then exploded with an ear-splitting crash. According to Johnsen, "It looked like sort of a cover was torn off the object in one piece. This, along with a number of other things, fell into the water. I especially noticed three black 'columns,' about two meters long and one-half meter in diameter. The cover itself was torn off in one piece and reminded me of a curved sheet of metal. This was fiery red at first but grew black before reaching the water."
