VERY STRANGE ALIEN CRAFT WITNESSED OVER FINLAND

JUNE 14, 1967   ....   PYYVAARA, SUOMUSSALMI, FINLAND

The sighting at Pyyvaara in Suomussalmi in the summer of 1967 is noteworthy in several respects: the unknown object was of a type seldom reported, it was observed at close range in broad daylight by five eyewitnesses, and the case was researched by a number of investigators; yet no conclusions could be reached. 

On June 14, 1967, at about noon, farmer Arvi Juntunen was busy in the yard greasing his field cultivator, while nearby his brother Veikko was tarring the runners of a sled. The weather was sunny and calm.  Suddenly there was a rumble in the sky, as from a whirlwind approaching, and Juntunen noticed the top of a Rowan tree in the yard swaying violently. 

He turned to look in the direction of the noise and was surprised to see an object, shaped like an upside-down kettle that had appeared about 6-7 meters from him and was now hovering about half a meter above ground.  Juntunen   estimated the object to be 70-80 cm across and about half as high. Sunlight reflected off its brownish surface and there was a wing-like extrusion on its flank. It had a separate base that seemed to be spinning rapidly.  At first Juntunen took the object to be something carried there by a whirlwind, and so decided to salvage it. As he approached to about three meters from it, three thin wires that looked like antennae emerged from the object's flank.  The ones at each side immediately turned in the same direction as the central one, and although they did not touch Juntunen he felt himself receiving a "pulsating blow," resembling an electric shock.  Mr. Juntunen was a little startled at this, but when the object began showing signs of moving again, he pulled his hat off his head and tossed it toward the antennae. The only effect this had was that the strong air pressure surrounding the object whisked the hat more than 10 meters away.  Now followed a display that appeared devoid of meaning.

The object rose higher in the air and began to zoom around the yard in every direction, up and down as well as sideways, like an angry wasp, with the antennae extending in front.  Mr. Juntunen realized that this was something others should witness. He shouted to the womenfolk and children in the house to come and have a look, but was not heard.  However, the matron of the neighboring farmhouse, Liisa Keränen, and her daughter-in-law Sirkka Keränen, did hear Juntunen's call and came out.  Actually, five-year-old Aarne Keränen had already been in to tell them about the strange flying object, but apparently the testimony of such a young witness had not been enough to interest the adults.  The five eyewitnesses now stood observing the most curious exhibition of their lives. The little craft's haphazard flight lasted quite a while and could easily have been photographed, but unfortunately no camera was available. 

At last the object began to climb at an angle towards the northwest and disappeared in the blue. The whole silent spectacle had lasted approximately 15 minutes.  Possibly, the same oddity may have been moving in the vicinity even before noon that day, because the children of the household had suddenly come rushing inside and begged the grown-ups to come out and look at a "helicopter."  Still, nothing was seen or heard at that time.

The case attracted quite a bit of attention, and the eyewitnesses were interviewed by several parties, among them military personnel from the Kainuu border patrol, as well as UFO researchers and journalists from Oulu.  All investigators were left nonplussed, but it was later discovered that a similar object had been seen six weeks previously by three local men out fishing on Lake Vuosselinjärvi in Kuusamo.   They had, however, thought it best to keep quiet about it, and only spoke up a couple of years later, apparently having heard of the Pyyvaara case by then.
