UFOs in the daily Press:

Flying saucers in Sweden, May 1954:

This article was published in the daily newspaper Svenska dagbladet, Stockholm, Sweden, on May 18, 1954.

Luleaa - A snowstorm on 17 May made it impossible for the Gaellivare police to investigate the celestial objects which were recently seen in various places in northern Norrbotten Province. The police do not think that the objects were meteorological balloons but do not have any theory to account for the sightings.

The latest eyewitness account was given by Valdemar Ylinentalo from Kuusijaervi, who declared that he saw a silvery football-shaped object coming from the Finnish side of the border; it had a fiery tail 70-80 meters long abd appeared to descend to earth about half a kilometer from where he was. Jenny Karlsson, another eyewitness, stated that she saw a sphere shaped object attached to a meter long rod pass her at a distance of 4-5 meters and come to earth in the forest, a short distance from her. No traces of this object have been found.
