Unknown light shown over Uppsala, Sweden witnessed by many people

This is a fresh report I found on the Internet at the main swedish net newspaper which listed a report from the Uppsala local newspaper http://www2.unt.se/first/ In swedish Mystiskt ljusfenomen väckte uppståndelse 2003-04-08 22:51 Ett ljusfenomen på himlen över Uppsalaområdet vållade uppståndelse på tisdagskvällen.

Observationer rapporterades från flera håll i Uppsala, bl a i Årstaområdet, samt i Örsundsbro. Såväl UNT som SOS Alarm i Uppsala fick ta emot samtal och epost om händelsen, och observationerna vidarebefordrades av SOS Alarm till flygräddningen. Alla rapporterna talade tämligen samstämmigt om en kulört lysande avlång kropp som efter en färd över himlavalvet tycktes upplösas i en vit, ljudlös explosion.

Några säkra uppgifter om vad det kunde röra sig om föreligger ännu inte.

Translated into English the report is as follows: A light phenomena in the sky above Uppsala created excitement during Tuesday evening.

Observation was reported from different places in Uppsala, in Artsa area and in the Orsundsbro.

Both the local newspaper and the rescue service in Uppsala got calls and e-mails about the incident, and the observation was transmitted to the rescue service and air rescue.

All reports talked about a multicolored luminescent oblong body moving over the sky which seemed to be dissolved into a white, soundless explosion.

Any reliable information on what it could have been does not exist at the current time.
