Observations of unidentified submarine objects in Norway

by Ole Jonny Brænne  

       Shortly before 7 a.m. one Thursday in October 1952, Johannes Nordlien was waiting for co-workers when he suddenly heard a howling, jet-like sound. A moment later a saucer-shaped object, four meters in diameter, came at high speed from the west and passed by him 100 meters away. It impacted with a violent splash in the river Lågen. The object was white as snow, and Nordlien clearly observed its flat and round shape as it hit the water. When his fellow workers showed up, the water was still boiling. The loud, howling sound vanished as soon as he saw the object.
