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.
