BRIGHT BLUE LIGHT OVER SWEDEN

12-12-2012   

Frightened residents in western Sweden reported seeing a bright, blue light racing across the night sky on Tuesday before an orange-coloured orb smashed into the ground in a mysterious phenomenon that has yet to be explained. Aviation authorities were quick to rule out initial theories that a plane had crashed somewhere deep in the forests of Varmland County. They, as well as police, suspect the mysterious night light and thunderous blast that prompted a flood of calls from concerned residents may have been caused by a meteorite. “We don’t know, but it could have been a part of the meteor shower people have been talking about,” duty officer Leif Svensson of the Varmland County police said. The first calls to emergency service SOS came around 10.25pm from Forshaga, a town about 25 kilometres north of Karlstad. More calls came from Stallet, Eksharad and Karlstad, and on Facebook, police in Sunne reported a rumbling reminiscent of an earthquake. “And we’ve also received information that people on the west coast and even in Finland made observations,” Svensson said. Neither police or other authorities have plans to investigate the strange sound and light phenomena.
