"Ghost Rockets"- UFO's, Meteors, Missiles, or what?

I have reconsidered Russian ability given the article which used memoirs of the rocket scientist to show that they were probably not up and running at the time of the first ghost rocket sightings.
It's still possible there were other secret divisions.

There was a rush for technological/strategic dominance due to the introduction of nuclear warfare, and perhaps there was a willingness from Russia to fake an unknown advantage until they caught up? It certainly caused a lot of concern and uncertainty.

I think there is definitely overlap between earthly military research and celestial phenomena, and maybe a little public craze and paranoia.
Anyway it is a fascinating era in history.

Lastly, I don't think we can entire discount the fact that this benefitted the US and its desires to remain in the region. We can all attest to the fact that these nations brought the US and its experitise into the region to help explain these events.
I say this because most people aren't aware of the clandestine stay behind guerilla CIA operations that ensued after the War and especially leading up to the Cold War. The US government along with other European Nations were seriously scared of Russia and whether or not they would use war to push their communist ideologies on the rest of Europe. Treaties were created immediately following the fall of Germany like the North Atlantic Treaty. This require countries to use clandestine soldiers to constantly be on the ready in case Russia attacked countries in Europe. We also know the CIA had secret stay-behind forces at the ready in Europe in case of an attack by Russia which came to light in Operation Gladio. So its not unreasonable to assume the US could've been involved after the fact. To keep countries at the ready so they wouldn't fall asleep at the wheel so to speak. Maybe it originally started with a few Russian missile test that went haywire and off course, then it was followed by the perseiod meteor shower. Then the US was called in to evaluate. Missiles started heading much further south and were even seen over the German USAFE base in Nubiberg. It could be a possibility but obviously there is no evidence to support it. At any rate there are a number of inconsistencies that it should raise an eyebrow or two. But at the end of all of this, the Russian "theory" seems to be the most logical of them all.
 
16 Aug 46 - (TOP SECRET) From: US Naval Attache at Stockholm, Sweden Date: 16 August, 1946 Reference: MA Stockholm's Top Secret Report R334-46 of 13 August 1946 Subject: SWEDEN Guided Missiles Rocket Sightings Over Sweden

No tangible evidence to date as to nature or origin of rockets reported over Sweden, although Swedish Defense Staff insists that they are rockets. Swedish press and public aroused, but Swedish Air Force officers still on summer leave, aircraft warning not mobilized, and no attempts made to intercept missiles with jet fighters; improbable that rockets, if any, are Russian or British, but possible that they are Swedish. Swedish defense staff evasive and their communiques contradictory and confusing. Sweden may be experimenting with rockets, but is concealing the fact and encouraging belief that rockets of foreign origin are being launched over Sweden, with civilian observers reporting jet fighters, contrails and meteors as rockets.

Undoubtedly the rockets were a real phenomenon, but possibly reports began to mix in other phenomena as well.
ETA ...
4. Although sightings of brilliant light phenomena over Stockholm on 11 August created a great furore in the Swedish press and considerable concern among the Swedish public, the Swedish Air Force has not called back its officers from their summer leave, and the Swedish aircraft warning net has not been mobilized to spot reported missiles. Considering the fact that hundreds of reports from all over the country have described cigar-shaped missiles with fiery tails at altitudes low enough for interception by Swedish jet-propelled aircraft, this apparently unconcern and lack of sustained energy on the part of the military organization is peculiar.

It is not common knowledge but at the end of World War 2 Sweden embarked upon its own project to develop the atomic bomb with sub-critical Plasma Pinch boosted fission weapons, using technology acquired from the Nazis.

The United States did not know how to make boosted fission weapons until 1956. After Edward teller inventor of the H-bomb began giving public lectures he acknowledged without German wartime research on Atomic bombs USA would have needed another decade to arrive at the H-bomb.

Incidentally Switzerland also embarked on development of an atomic bomb in 1945.

The first boosted fission bomb was detonated in 1951. The Germans couldn't develop a fission bomb so it seems highly dubious to me they skipped fission and started working on fusion technology. What is your source for that?
