Here is a 1975 UFO landing story that I heard about as a kid, the impression of the UFO is still visible, 40 years later. Pictures in the link.

Inexplicable ring

A October day in 1975 a large strange circle appeared on a Åkerkve, a bay where the islanders gladly celebrated St. Hans. A deep silt in the earth was ringing around the whole ground. Someone who walked up to a mountain cliff nearby could see an oval circle with a diameter of 63 meters.

- The ring was completely symmetrical. The grass lay flat in the same direction, said sailor Normann Larsen (52) as he paced around the strange ring.


Sounds like a leap of faith to explain a mysterious ring with 'flying saucer landing.' On the same evening that this ring appeared a passing ship described a very bright light landing in the same area. According to the article it was written in the log book due to being so unusual. In another article, there's mention of more than one boat seeing the light and apparently dogs were restless.

In this photograph from the time, there are clearer edges where the ground was freshly depressed.

There's some aerial video of the circle here.

Thats oval is very symmetrical... damn near perfect in fact.

Any known cases of this happening naturally?

I thought the same thing. Very symmetrical.

You'd want to know if any timber long houses had ever been built there in the past. Excavate down to see if there's any structure. It's bloody large. I wondered about boat burials and the size and location rules that one out.

Odd shape for boats or buildings. Colour me puzzled.



ETA - looking at the video, I wonder if it was once a wall that's since been dismantled? There are lots of rock piles nearby that might have been part of a dry stone wall.

Very true.
That would had been one huge long house though!

Looks like a great place to spend an evening or go star spotting.

And you can judge the perfectness from the photos/video?

A bit googling shows that they even have UFO signposts for the tourists, err, I mean UFO investigators.

So I'd go with human made attraction.

Viking long house ? Very likely.
Viking longhouses were burned and buried in funerals

In Winter, they would have taken all the animals inside, there would be pens along the edges. In the center there would be a fireplace and chimney. Family members would have beds on one end and the door at the other.

From your source...

The grass lay flat in the same direction, said sailor Normann Larsen (52) as he paved the way for the strange ring.


Does that mean he mowed the ring area So that it is easier to see?

Interesting about the ship log!

What gets me is why would a flying craft land and make such an extensive 'depression' in the ground...perhaps the whole craft, perhaps not, but in any case why?? ....it doesn't seem like the best idea in the engineering of a landing device where such a large area is involved.
Alternatively it could be the marking of a propulsion system of some kind.

Interesting story and thread, haven't seen it posted yet but I think the coordinates below indicate the correct location on Google Earth:

59°35'42.78"N 5° 8'51.57"E

The impressions or outlines seem to be faintly visible in the satellite imagery from 2010. Click thumbnail below for a larger version of a Google Earth screenshot.

thats looks nothing like any trace case i have ever seen, this looks more like someone carved a trench in the ground with a pointy tool

I don't care how many people come up with reasonable explanations: It was faeries... or aliens.
That's my story, and I'm sticking to it!

Bright light as reported by a ship log?

Well, to corroborate that, we need to know the ship and have a copy of the log.

Also, why couldn't this just be the aftermath of a small brush fire?

Yes, the shape would indicate something else was there. So, maybe someone had an old junker boat, they put it upside down in the spot, then burnt it to ashes. The ring around the outside would be where the soil was dried out and carbonized near the edge of said boat hull, so as to prevent regrowth.

Burn boat to ground, use leaf blower or rake to disperse ashes, no evidence.

This is more likely than extraterrestrials, even though it sounds weird.
Remember, aliens, is the last option of consideration, in responsible analysis.
