Location of Sighting: Stockholm, Sweden
Date of Sighting: Summer, 1978
Time of Sighting: 5 AM Local Time
Description: This is real and I’m a skeptic. My mother and I were asleep and we lived 3 stories up in an apartment that had apartments opposing to our house so it was in a pretty tight yard this happened. It was good, clear and calm weather outside and we woke up while still very dark outside to a bright red light that shined really brightly into our home. I remember being blinded by the red light and couldn’t really see anything outside the window due to the very bright red light. I was scared and went to bed, but my mother kept looking at it and I remember her being very stunned over what was happening (the odd sight).
She told me later that the “thing” hovered completely still for a while in complete silence and then flew away with no sound at all. The “thing” had a sphere shape and was shining with bright red light (not a lightning phenomena due to the weather being very good). And it had like thin “smoke” behind it (as my mom remembers it) as it flew away. There was no sound and there was an ease of movement while it flew away. To this day 40 years later we have no idea what it was. Since I’m a skeptic I’m 50/50 on UFO or some earthly technology. Of course this was in the 70’s and I don’t know if the army had silent flying spheres back then?
That is my report. There is not much to go on, but it happened. There are no fancy photo shopped images or grainy videos. It was just a sighting that really happened, but I have no idea what it was. I do know that I read about others back then here in Sweden who saw something similar. They was a glowing red sphere.Note to Commenters: If you are reporting a sighting, be sure to include the location (city, state, country), date and time of your sighting.
