Ghost Rockets: 1946 [More interesting than you think]

UFO notable Chris Savia (The Anomalist, Daily Grail contributor) is heading up publicity for an ongoing project about Scandinavia’s Ghost Rockets, spurred by UFO-Sweden and Clas Svahn – UFO- Sweden's vice chairman and journalist, about whom you can read here:

Most of you know something about the Ghost Rocket episode(s) of 1946 but here’s the Wikipedia take on the sightings:

UFO Sweden is a ufology group, which is highlighted in a film about a recent Ghost Rocket-like sighting that UFO Sweden undertook to research, because it had all the earmarks of the 1946 Ghost Rocket sightings.

The film, which is leisurely by usual documentary standards, is interesting insofar as it shows a typical UFO buff group [UFO Sweden] and its machinations about a foray to the lake where the above-noted sighting took place.

The two people, who had the recent Ghost Rocket-like sighting, are a credible, rational example of UFO witnessing, and what they describe is fascinating (to me).

Also, the quasi-philosophical musings by some UFO Sweden old-timers are right up my alley: our place in the Universe, the possibility of UFOs from extraterrestrial civilizations (or not), and the still-exciting curiosity that UFOs (or Ghost Rockets) instills in them.

Here's the trailer for the film:


While the Ghost Rocket sightings, like many classic flying saucer/UFO sightings or events, are passé for many UFO mavens nowadays, such sightings (referenced in the documentary) are grist for some of us, as they engender the mystery of the phenomenon which drew us to it.

Check out the film, be patient – let it wash over you. It is quiescent but soothes the savage breast of ufology hereabouts.
