In July 1955 , a woodcutter, who preferred to remain anonymous, was working in the forests of the Gulf of Bothnia in Västra Norrland, Sweden, with his two brothers . Let’s take a deeper look at the alien encounter in Sweden.
The 1955 alien encounter in Sweden
At some point, the three of them heard a very loud and incomprehensible noise , which they described as a sound similar to that of a very large animal running wild through the bushes.
Hearing this mysterious noise, the rustle and rustle of branches and bushes, they saw above them aflying so low that it touched the tops of the trees. Fragments of branches and leaves rained down on the men like an avalanche.
At first they thought it was a small plane crashing, so when the object passed over them, they ran in the direction it fell. And the fact that it was definitely falling was obvious, the object was rapidly losing altitude.
“I don’t know what we were expecting, maybe a deafening roar as the plane hit the ground, but it didn’t happen. missing
The light was so bright that we could see through the trees . For a second, I could even see the seeds of the trees, and they were more than a meter in diameter, like in an X-ray.
After a few seconds, a vacuum wave arrived, sucking everything into the center of the light. The three of us flew forward, branches and leaves flying past us.
It probably all lasted only a split second, but I still remember hitting a tree, time stopped and my whole life instantly replayed in my head. Even the usual sounds of the forest have ceased.
When the three woodcutters finally reached Esta’s house where they thought the plane had crashed. They ended up in a clearing where, for some reason, no planes or other equipment was visible. There were damaged trees, lots of broken branches, but no remains of the plane.
But they found a living humanoid creature in the branches . He was a very short man, apparently about 110-120 cm tall, around whose body a strange white light “vibrated”, “like a halo”.
The creature seemed dead at first, and one of the brothers reached out to touch the lifeless body, then immediately withdrew his hand, receiving a strong electric shock. And then the little man opened his eyes and said in perfect Swedish: “Don’t touch me, it will only bring you trouble.”
“After that, I immediately calmed down and carefully examined it. He was not a dwarf in the broad sense of the word. He had a well-proportioned build, with broad shoulders and normal features. His skin was yellowish, like an Asian. His eyes were sunken and black, without protein.
His face was covered in bruises with a couple of large cuts on his chin and forehead. No blood flowed, but the skin around her wounds felt wet. The top of her head was lightly covered with a fluff of almost white hair. Her earlobes were an integral part of her neck and resembled shark fins. Her lips were wrinkled, narrow, and colorless.
When he smiled reassuringly, as he often did, he revealed a row of small teeth in both his upper and lower jaws. I especially noticed that her fangs were flat and as wide as our two front teeth.
His hands were small with five slender, nailless fingers, and when he moved his hand, it seemed that the ring finger was fused with the little finger, because they moved in synchrony.
His clothes were like reddish metal and seemed to fit his body perfectly. Her head and hands were free, but on her feet the clothing changed to a pair of closed boots size 35-37.
The soles of the boots were grooved and vibrating, and for a moment I thought of the tank tracks. The stranger looked at me and nodded slightly. There was no doubt that he knew what he was thinking.
With these boots, he could roll from side to side on the surface without even moving his feet. Around his waist was a wide silver metal belt with an unusually large buckle that glowed slightly with a light blue tint, then turned dark blue when she died.
In the middle of the buckle was a yellow sign – UV – it looked like the letter V, which was included in the letter U.
A strange creature told the woodcutter that he was thrown from his spaceship, badly injured, and now dying. He then took out of his pocket a rectangular object the size of a matchbox and with 12 small notches. He then pulled out another pencil-like object and pricked some of the first object’s depressions before tossing it into the bushes.
The alien then told the woodcutter not to touch it, and that the object was a beacon so his companions would know where to go to retrieve his body when he died.
Then something curious happened. The two brothers seemed disoriented and left the clearing, leaving the primary eyewitness alone with the dying creature in the woods:
“The stranger lay for some time as if asleep. His hands were clenched tightly, and it was obvious that he was in great pain. Then my brothers suddenly got confused, looked at each other, and then, without saying a word, they returned to the forest. Later Years later, looking back on this incident, I am convinced that the stranger somehow asked my brothers to leave without saying a word.
I sat talking and listening to him for two hours before he died. Shortly before his death, a stranger gave me a folded package from an invisible pocket and said: “When I die, the light will disappear from my body, and with the help of two other men, you will put me in this bag and carry me. to the river where I will disappear. Then you need to carefully bathe in water so as not to get sick.
Now I was breathing hard and I saw that the end was near. The halo around her body weakened and gradually disappeared. Her light blue buckle gradually darkened. He looked at me and smiled. He said something in a language he had never heard before or since.
Suddenly, it changed to Swedish and I heard the last two sentences: “You came without any wish and you are leaving against your own wish. Our life is like evaporation.”
He said a few more words, but his voice was so weak I couldn’t hear them. I am convinced that he prayed to some deity before he died. He touched me a lot”.
Then the brothers came back, looking a bit dazed and confused, as if they weren’t quite sure what just happened to them or why they left. The men put the dead foreigner in a bag and carried him to the river, noticing that the bag smelled of sulfur and burned his hands. When the sack was lowered into the water, the body and the sack dissolved.
“When the bag hit the water, it started to bubble around it and we realized that some kind of chemical process had started. After 5 minutes, nothing was left of the bag and body, and I thought that perhaps the stranger was hoping to fall into the river to a quick death, instead of staying there for a couple of hours, suffering. He would probably rather die alone, thinking of his home, which is many light-years away.”
A few days after this incident, the woodcutter again went to the area to find a rectangular object dropped by an alien , but only found an object that looked like a pencil. She kept it as a keepsake and as proof that she didn’t dream it all.
After that, he kept this story to himself for many years. It wasn’t until he talked to a UFO researcher named John Fontaine , who wrote about all of this in an article called “Humanoid Dies in Sweden,” that the story became public.
Fontaine personally spoke to the woodcutter and seemed to be the only person the man spoke to about it, but the problem was that the eyewitness, even to him, never fully revealed the details of his lengthy conversation with the alien when they were alone:
“What they talked about during these two hours, I couldn’t get the witness to tell. I begged and persuaded him, but he didn’t tell me anything, just some of the following snippets.
He said that the alien came from a place near the constellation we call the Eagle.and some are so advanced that we would only see them when they materialized or dematerialized to visit a parallel universe orbiting Earth.
Some aliens kept people on earth under surveillance and did so for millennia, while others took samples of the earth for the purpose of further settlement, and still others had contact with humanity for centuries. That’s it,” Fontaine wrote.
