Observations of unidentified submarine objects in Norway
On Thursday, July 18, 1946, a "ghost rocket"
crashed into Lake Mjøsa (in southeastern Norway).
Between 12 and 12:30 p.m., several witnesses
observed a V1-like object coming in low from the
west at about 50 meters' height. The witnesses first
heard a strong whistling sound, not exactly like
that associated with known aircraft. The
object flew so low as to cause the trees to sway.
It impacted in Lake Mjøsa about two kilometers
western shore and seven kilometers from
Minnesund, where the depth is 300-400 meters.
It was cigar-shaped, about 2.5 meters long, with
it hit the lake, the water splashed several meters
into the air. There was no explosion. The
sky was clear, and the water quickly calmed. Some
witnesses thought they saw two objects, one in front
of the other. The Norwegian Defense High Command
conducted an investigation according to press
reports of the period, but the documents have never
been recovered. There is a distinct possibility that
all documents on the 1946 ghost-rocket wave have
been destroyed. If so, this is a disaster for UFO
historians, who will be left with only newspaper
