During the May December period of 1946 the Swedish defence headquarters received, according to official statistics, 997 such reports, but that flgure ia an underrating of the real number of sighting reports from Sweden and the Scandinavian countries during that year. In about 100 incidents rocket - shaped objects - or luminous phenomena - were n as they erashed towards the earth s surface. In many instances it seemed as if the phenomena were remote- controlled to crash inte lakes and other water surfac Oespite lengthy and extensive search of the bottoms of several lakes the defence force dld not succeed in securing any metat, or similar wreckage parts, which with certainty could point to any kind of rocket construction. Th new experienc were in sharp contrast to the territorial violation of the immedia ely preceeding war years, when concrete evidence was secured through numerous air plane wreckages and other heaps of metallic scrap in several places Cl). The ghost rockats Cor ghost bombs , the phenomena was christened by th m dia 2 , has for 40 years b en an area of interest to UFO researchers, private citlz n who try to inv tlgate and document sightings of unldentlfied flying objects UFOs . Leeking the support of the dlrect documents and observation data from this era, the phenomenon has been an object of wild sp culation in books and magazines, not the least in th USA. Th writings hav, of course, th lr background in a natural interest in what!:!!!.!. happ n d over Swedan and Seandinavia in During 1947 repor-ts of so-called flying saucers created an normou sensation in the American pr and finally for-ced the U.S. Air Force to start a more than 20 year long series of investigation projects. A rch through 140 American newspapers has since revealed that the American sighting wave of 1947 had greater proportions than what was generally believed. For the summer months of June and July, alone, there are more than 850 ightings on fil in American arehivas (3). There was a striking resemblanc with the Swedish phenomena a year before, although the two slghting waves described objects of completely different shapes. In both waves thousands of unprepared witnesses $aw objects which neither they, nor their governments, could explain sufficiently. In Bweden, as WIPll as in the United States, interest was primarily focused on the Sovlet Union, who wa bellevad to be responsible for the strange occurences.

Such theories wer introduced during the summer of 1948 within the U.S. Air Force Project Sign and in tha public media during 1949/ 0 through magazine articles and a book by avlatlon journali t Q!! - -!t! Swedi&h UFO researchers, who have att mpted to locata the primary material from 1946, hav been frustrated by stataments from the Research Institute of National Defence and th Defence Staff that the documents wera lost in the bureaucracy (4). 9-!!!!!!!_!!!!-!-!! r!!_!!!

The first, more substantial, sighting was made only three days after Gösta Carlsson had witnessed a landed disc:-shaped object, and ita occupants, in a glade near Vegeholm in south Swed1m. Th n txt day I wrote a report to the Defenc Staff, but I n v r sent it off. If I had they would hav put m in a mental hospital , C;arlsson ravaaled tw nty-s tvan years later to a Swedish reporter (10 . Without going inte datails it can b said that th Swedish docum tnt, discover d by B trlin r, d scrib the committee s futil att mpts to explain the mystery of the ghost rockats. Don Barlin r published the document in an American magazin l, despite information from th Sw tdish mbassy in W;ashington that it was still consid r d SECRET in Sweden.
