What is it that has struck in Värmland?
SOS, police and air rescue center has received calls from concerned Värmlandsbor after a ball of light is said to have exploded in the evening. “It lit up the sky and flew over us, then we heard an explosion”, says Jessica Berg Stöllet.
Jessica Berg Stöllet was out walking with a friend when they were surprised by the strong lights.
Calls have come from Stöllet, Ekshärad, Karlstad and Forshaga. All have seen a mysterious ball of light which then struck down – followed by an explosion.
They say they have seen a sharp blue glow, then a sharp orange ball struck, says Leif Svensson, duty officer at the Värmland police. Surprisingly Established by the strong light
Jessica Berg Stöllet was out walking with a friend when they were surprised by the strong lights. It sounded nothing in the sky when it flew over us. Then it hit bottom near Klarälven somewhere. Then we were struck by the sound, like an echo after the explosion, she says to Aftonbladet and continues:
It was mysterious. Nasty mysterious. Several readers have contacted the Times about the event. I heard a bang and the whole house shook, said a witness in Vansbro. 24-year-old Sandra was sitting in his apartment in Karlstad and suddenly felt that she would look out the window – where she saw a plunge from the sky.
At first I thought it was fireworks, but small and just never went on, I thought maybe it was a comet, for it looked a bit like a ball. It was a red and yellow light around and after, she says, adding that she had seen shooting stars before, and this is not at all like that.
This was really different and much larger. It looked as if something falls from space in a film Armageddon or something. I do not know what to describe it as, I have never seen such a thing before, says Sandra. No airplane accident
Police have received several calls about the phenomenon and also SOS has been dialed. We do not know, but it may have been part of the meteor shower as it talked about, says Leif Svensson told TT. We can not do much without linking it to the Air Force among others.
Although Naval and air rescue center has been alerted about a light phenomenon in the sky from Värmland region. There are two people who have dialed in observations and it should have been seen from the air traffic control tower at Karlstad Airport. One woman spoke of a really big explosion, says Jonas Sundin, deputy incident commander.
But it is not about any airplane accident. It’s probably some kind of meteorite. At 1:00 on Wednesday morning had readers from among other Sodertalje, Stenungsund Kungalv, Karlstad, Vansbro heard from Aftonbladet with eyewitness accounts.
And we have also heard that people on the West Coast and even in Finland have made observations, says Leif Svensson told TT. Michael Sundin was out with her dog in Billingsfors just outside Amal, Västra Götaland, at 2:12 last night when he saw the light phenomenon in the sky. It was the craziest thing I’ve seen. It remained so long that I got the phone and take a picture. I do not think the end of the world but tomorrow it is I who buy a bow, he says to Aftonbladet.”
