Ghost rockets Flying Saucers Extraterrestrial Origins 1948 Top Secret USAF UFO extraterrestrial document.
February 26, 1946 – Finnish observers report the first of many thousands of sightings of ghost rockets.
"For some time we have been concerned by the recurring reports on flying saucers. They periodically continue to pop up; during the last week, one was observed hovering over Neubiberg Air Base for about thirty minutes. They have been reported by so many sources and from such a variety of places that we are convinced that they cannot be disregarded and must be explained on some basis which is perhaps slightly beyond the scope of our present intelligence thinking.
"When officers of this Directorate recently visited the Swedish Air Intelligence Service, this question was put to the Swedes. Their answer was that some reliable and fully technically qualified people have reached the conclusion that 'these phenomena are obviously the result of a high technical skill which cannot be credited to any presently known culture on earth'. They are therefore assuming that these objects originate from some previously unknown or unidentified technology, possibly outside the earth".
"In their opinion the observation was reliable and they believe the depression on the floor of the lake which did not appear on current hydrographic charts was in fact caused by a flying saucer
although accepting this theory of these objects poses a whole new group of questions and puts much of our thinking in a changed light we are inclined not to discredit entirely this somewhat spectacular theory maintain keeping an open mind on the subject"
