FULL TITLE:
There’s a Huge UFO Archive Hiding in These Swedish Apartment Cellars
And it's surprisingly low-key.

In such surroundings, it seems strange to find the world’s largest open UFO archive. Yet there it is, just a five-minute tram ride from the city center.
.
. . .
.
Though the Archives for the Unexplained now boasts over 20,000 collections of animalistic phenomena from all around the world, it had very humble, local beginnings. It all started in 1973 when Anders and his two friends Hakan Blomqvist and Kjell Jonsson founded the Work Group for Ufology, a predecessor to the UFO Archives. Curious about unexplainable objects in the sky, the then 23-year-old and his colleagues ran a library out of their student apartments, hoping to create a dialogue about UFOs in Scandinavia. Over time the library expanded and the group officially became known as the Archives for UFO Research in January of 1980.
.
Despite assumptions that the organization is comprised of staunch believers in all things extraterrestrial, Liljegren and his coworkers prefer to take a more academic approach to their archival project. “We’ve had some bad experiences with fanatics," he says. “It is best to have people working here who are more sociologically interested.” Liljegren has been personally involved in a wide array of research regarding Scandinavian “close encounters” and was one of the first to gain access to theretofore-secret government documents detailing the Swedish “ghost fliers” and “ghost rockets” that caused a commotion in the 1930s and 1940s.

". . . trouble with fanatics?"
.
Whatever can they mean? LOLOLOLOL
.
It sounds like quite a historical collection.
.
It might be a treasure trove for a dedicated researcher in our era . . . or later.
.
I don't know that there are any shocking revelations in such repositories. However, there are likely lots of hard to ferret out details and nuances that could be quite valuable in understanding what's going on.
.
I hope they can take good care of it. Perhaps it could eventually be scanned and put online.
.
On the other hand, events could literally 'fall out of the skies' any day . . . and make most of it archaic and very dated curiosities as things swept us rapidly along a dramatic new course in a massive river.
