UFOs in the daily Press:

Unidentified 'satallite' seen in Sweden, 1960:

This article was published on page 9 in the daily newspaper Dagens Nyheter, Stockholm, Sweden, on March 7, 1960.

Moving light phenomenon is believed to be satellite

According to a radio report to Nidlanda Airport outside Sundsvall, an unidentified luminous object, probably a satellite, was sighted from one of Linjeflyg's regular planes en route from Stockholm to Sundsvall.

Air Captain Mauritz Hamrin, Captain of Linjeflyg's regular evening plane to Sundsvall, said late in the evening of March 6, that, "it was just after 20:00 hours Swedish time that copilot Kjell Fern reported a bright luminous object on a generally north-westerly course." He thinks that there is hardly any great doubt that is was some sort of satellite.

Light phenomenon which may originate from a satellite have also been observed over Stockholm. It was reported to Dagens Nyheter from Iidingos that on two evenings in succession a moving point of light had been observed at 22:30 hours in a south-southwesterly direction and 15 to 20 degrees above the horizon.
