I was advised to start a new thread regarding this topic so here it goes. In the last thread people were discussing the most likely causes for triangular UFO sightings, summing it up to Stealth Bombers. Which I don't disagree with. My fascination about these "UFO's" deals mostly with pre-manned flight or before the advent of jets, stealth technology, and drones. One particular incident that stands out are the infamous "ghost rockets" that were sighted all over Scandinavia during 1946. There were some 2000 sightings in a matter of 6 months between may and december. About 10% of them were verified by radar, and authorities recovered actual fragments. Some have tried to explain it away as meteors or possibly the V1 or V2 rockets the Russians were testing after they confiscated them after the war. The Russian theory was rejected by US, Swedish, and British intelligence because no rocket fragments were ever discovered. As for meteors, it's possible, but I can't remember a time in history that 2000 of them have ever been seen in the light of day within a 6 month window. If your lucky, you might see one a year and thats at night, but to see 2000 of them in a concentrated area is highly implausible, and many governments agree. Another reason why they don't believe the majority of them were meteors was because they made turns and didn't fall in the typical fashion that meteors fall in. Here's a top secret file from the USAF that was drawn up in response to these events: So its obvious that the US intelligence community took this seriously and at face value based on what other scientist where telling them and based on radar images. One of the best known cases was; The Greek government also offered their own opinion after doing research; So what are we to make of these "ghost rockets". We know that many governments were involved in the research of these incidents, and that it was taken seriously. We've heard all governments declare that its likely meteors could have made up the majority of them, but that there are too many cases where they've seen them make turns and move intelligently, coupled with the fact that there have been several craters found in lakes and on land with no remnants of missiles or meteorites. So I wanted to know what others thought.
