UFO-The Glades in Ängelholm

Have creatures from another planet landed in Ängelholm? The incident took place in a forest clearing May 18, 1946. The 28-year-old Gösta Carlsson was returning from his job at SJ. He went through the forest and suddenly saw a bright light among the trees. Above him was a discus-shaped craft with a cup on the roof. Around the craft were 11 creatures, both men and women. One of the creatures made a stop signal towards Gösta. He saw how they tried to fix the broken craft. In order to convince himself that everything really did happened, Gösta went down to the beach and waded out into the icy water. When he returned, he saw the UFO lift up towards the sky and disappear at high speed. The grass appeared to have burn marks, as well as the large adjacent tree. He found part of a pole, two cups of strong milky white solvent and a ring of metal. The meeting initiated a series of amazing events. Through contacts, he made a theory as to why the craft landed just in this forest. In the book, "Mötet i Gläntan," (The Meeting in the Glades) he tells all about his experiences.
