Swedish Team Launches UFO Retrieval Mission

A research team set off for northern Sweden on Thursday to get
to the bottom a "Ghost Rocket" sighting from 1980 that has been
labelled as "the biggest UFO mystery in the world" and which the
Swedish military kept classified for years.

The expedition leader and head of UFO-Sweden, Clas Svahn, set
off on the trip to Jokkmokk, far northern Sweden on Thursday
together with a support team, divers, a film crew, and the
original witness who watched the craft land in the water.

"I expect to be surprised", Svahn told The Local, explaining
that while he is not a "believer", he hopes that the trip can
provide answers.

"People mistake UFOs with flying saucers. There are many, many
reports of strange things in the air, but what we're interested
in is explaining what they are. Every answer is a good answer."

The craft the team is looking for was seen crash-landing in the
south end of a lake in Muddus, back on July 31st, 1980.

The witnesses, Bo and Liz Berg, watched as the "elongated, cigar
shaped object with two protrusions on its sides" came whizzing
by them, turned 180 degrees, and performed a controlled landing
in the water, disappearing in a spray of bubbles.

The description of the object led the research team to conclude
it was a so-called Ghost Rocket - a spacecraft that has long
held captured the attention of both UFO investigators and the
military alike.

Since 1946, witnesses have reported nearly 20,000 unidentified
objects in the skies over Sweden, with 1,000 alone in 1946.
