Norwegian Navy Fires At (& Hits) A UFO 24 Times...

Here's an interesting little-known UFO case. I'm writing this from memory but I'm pretty sure I have everything mostly as reported:

In the 1970s, the Norweigan Navy fired anti-submarine missiles at what was described as a "massive" and "silent" object sitting on the surface of the water off the coast of Norway before it submerged itself and was tracked into the Sognefjord at a speed of over 100 kts. (The fastest speed any Navy will admit to for its submarines is somewhere between 45 and 55 kts., depending on who you listen to).

They pursued it into the fjord before firing again. They fired a total of 24 missiles and hit it an undetermined number of times (with no apparent effect) before a fleet of 30 ships blockaded, mined, and searched the fjord for nealy 2 weeks.

They never located it again but surveillance aircraft in the area reported encountering unidentified "helicopters" executing astonishing maneuvers in the middle of fierce storms. Also, a dozen, or more, local civillians and police officers reported a number of additional aerial objects in the area.

      Reminds me of "The Abyss". A movie where the aliens were living deep in the ocean by Cayman's Trough.

      That seem to be it but they left out some information that appears on other websites (in addition to those paragraphs, albeit slightly different in each case - that being a big with problem with UFO reports).

      The search was conducted between 12 and 22 of November 1972 by 30 vessels and other NATO forces.

      Admittedly, I've mixed up a few details too: particularly its speed, which wasn't tracked by the Navy but was calculated by comparing how far apart two sightings of it occured within a set time frame.

      Also, the number of times it was fired on varies between reports too. However, I read an early report on the incident and I remember quite clearly that it was 2 dozen, or more, times in total.

    Tommy -- Wasn't it only last year that your military (or the Brit's or someone over there) was chasing some UFO's? What became of that story?

      Nothing much, as far the public is concerned. Similar reports pop up all the time (and have done for years) in an area north of Dublin, particularly near Dublin Airport, and extending just over the Northern Ireland border, and off the coast in that area. Sightings are common over Dublin City too. The RAF have chased UFOs right across Northern Ireland and out into the Atlantic. Civillian airliners sometimes report having to alter course because of them, with one flight, in particular, reportedly damaged by one.

      The Irish Navy has encountered them off the coast of Dublin on more than one occassion and, in common with airline pilots who have filed a number of near miss reports, report their behaviour to be aggressive. And, in cases where they are actually fired upon, they don't seem to suffer any damage.

      Interestingly, a naval patrol came across a French naval vessel off the coast of Dublin late last summer that refused to explain itself and, in fact, when challenged, turned about and left the area before the patrol could catch up with it. When complained to, the French said they knew nothing about it and, because it happened just a few months after Ireland rejected the Lisbon Treaty, it was reported in a mocking way by the press here (i.e. we didn't play their game so the Frenchies have nothing better to do than spy on us now). I only mention this because it happened in the same area as the UFOs were encountered. Who knows - perhaps they had other reasons for being there? (Pure speculation of course. Somehow, I doubt, "What are we doing here? Oh, nothing... just looking for UFOs is all" would ever get transmitted over the radio. )

        Some of those fjords are incredibly deep and convoluted.
        Add in thermal and salinity layers and you get quite a
        good hiding place

      I suppose an unidentified floating object is a rarity but I have to wonder at the mentality of the shoot first policy exhibited by the Norwegians.

      Presumably there was no retaliation since the ufo submerged and left the immediate area.

      Isn't there some sort of military code that says you cannot shoot at something simply because you don't like where it is?

        Art,

        Most military forces will shoot-first-ask-questions-later especially if they don't like where something is. It (whatever they are shooting at) only needs to be perceived as a threat and unidentified aircraft (or surface vessels) are almost always perceived that way, especially if they come close to a sensitive military area or installation, or, indeed, come close to the forces themselves.

    This is probably the best documented and investigated series of UFO and alien encounters ever. (Series of 5 videos). At least, the Brazilian didn't even try to offer any explanation on the results of the investigation.

    If they are coming up from under, why are we calling them UFOs instead of USO's (swimming)? It's probably just those pesky lemurians and not Aliens in that case. If so, they are using crystal power in some fashion. Going to have to dive and find the power plant, I suppose - and as Mike points out - lot of places to hide those things.
