UFOs in the daily Press:

UFO in Sweden, 1945:

The article below was published in the daily newspaper Stockholms-Tidningen, Stockholm, Sweden, on November 2, 1945.

A light phenomenon of especially remarkable nature was observed around 6:00 in the evening, on Wednesday [November 1], in the vicinity of Stallarholmen, east of Strangnas. Karl Adamsson, an electrician, was bicycling north on a road toward Overselo Church, when he suddenly observed a flashing light which repeated several times.

A grove of trees stood in his way, and when he came around that, the flashing ceased. Instead, he saw at great height a kind of fireball, which shone with a dull golden light. It came from the southeast at a very great speed. He saw it move toward the northwest a little more than half a mile, whereupon the ball stopped and hung motionless in the air.

In a few seconds it continued, but this time back in the direction it had come from. When it had covered a stretch of about a third of a mile, it stopped once again and remained motionless for about five minutes, during which it continously shed a rain of sparks. The light gradually diminished and in the end completely disappeared.

What the whole thing may have been no one has been able to figure out. Several persons noticed the phenomenon.
