OSLO -- On September 25, 2001, police in Helgeland, north central Norway, have been getting a rash of reported UFO sightings, while a woman in the northern town of Bodø insists a small flying object landed in her garden. Tøgersen says several more people have come forward after news reports carried the account of three people in the town of Mosjøen who dove for cover when they saw a low-flying, whirling object hurtle through the night skies On September 23. "We also have several other witness observations of the same phenomenon in the same time frame on Sunday," Tøgersen said. Other people have reported sightings of additional UFOs that apparently resemble small, brightly lit balls. While the larger object over Mosjøen emitted no noise whatsoever, Tøgersen says the smaller objects are reported to have made a hissing sound. But the most remarkable reports came from the northern city of Bodø. There, a woman went out of her house and a flying object landed on her lawn, stoo!
d there awhile, and then lifted off and flew away. Two other separate individuals reported the same sighting, at the same time, on Saturday evening. One of the two was driving his car when he spotted it flying over Vefsnfjorden, while another saw it while out on a veranda. Both reported that it was brightly lit.
