Lake Objects Reported In Scandinavia

By Richard Hall

       Professor Bertil Soderquist, MUFON Representative in Sweden, has reported several incidents of mysterious objects in lakes, but with no apparent UFO association.       


       In Lake Siljan, Dalarna Province (central Sweden), April 30, 1976, three witnesses saw a pointed object tearing a channel through the ice between 5:15 and 5:30 pm.

The object, estimated to be moving 90 km/hr, cut a channel 1 km long and 3-4 meters wide through the 20 cm thick ice. Ice floes and water cascaded around it as it forced its way through the ice. The object was dark (2 witnesses) or gray (1 witness) and about 10 meters long.
