Ghost Rockets

Ghost Rockets

Just after the end of World War 2 people in Sweden reported thousands of sightings of UFOs that were named Ghost Rockets. Witnesses reported seeing a blazing light leave a smoky trail in the air. The lights were seen to dive, roll, and perform other aerial acrobatics. They had long flaming tails, made little sound, and traveled at speeds in excess of 400+ mph. One Swedish Air Force pilot pursued it and reported to spot a torpedo-shaped object which had no aircraft features, but his bomber couldn’t keep up with it due to its high speed. US government took them seriously enough that President Dwight D. Eisenhower sent war hero Gen. Jimmy Doolittle to Sweden to investigate in 1946. It’s still a mystery what these actually were.
