       Professor Bertil Soderquist, MUFON Representative in Sweden, has reported several incidents of mysterious objects in lakes, but with no apparent UFO association. The most UFO-like occurred in March 1974 on Lake Jalka, northern Sweden (about 67.0 deg N; 19.9 deg E). Mr. R.R. was driving on the road between Gallivare and Porjus in the early morning. The weather was cloudy and chilly. As he approached the small lake (about 2.5 km by 300 m), he saw a strange mist over the ice-free lake. On closer approach, he saw that the mist surrounded a mysterious object (see sketch) resting on the water.

The object was about 15-20 m long, 5 m in height, and had a superstructure ending in a point. The contour was darkish. The witness hurried away, driven by a sudden fear.
