Location: Kallavesi Lake, Finland
Raimo Blomqvist was visiting with his parents at their
summer cottage, when he suddenly noticed a strange, colourful
light ball coming from the sky. The light came nearer
and turned out to be an oval glowing object. While the
object was hovering above the shallow water of the island
he saw something falling from the object. Mr. Blomqvist

PIECE OF KALLAVESI 1964
is a lake in the Eastern part of Finland, near the city
local resident Mr. Raimo Blomqvist, 30, was visiting with
his parents their summer cottage on an island in Kallavesi.
It was a Saturday evening in August, about 19 o'clock,
when he suddenly noticed a strange, colourful light ball
coming from the sky, under the cloud cover.
light came nearer and turned out to be an oval glowing
object. It was something he had never seen that
is why it was difficult for him to discribe the object.
He said that it had "the shape of a fishcock"
("kalakukko", a local dish with fish and meet
baked in bread). There was one difference: as the cross
section of a fishcock is a quite regular, symmetric ellipse,
one end of the strange object was oddly curved.
the object was hovering above the shallow water of the
island (some meters above water, 10 meters from Mr. Blomqvist),
he saw something falling from the object. When it broke
the water surface, he heard a sound that resembled hot
metal touching cold water.
UFO started to glow brightly and shot almost straight
upwards and disappeared into the clouds. Mr. Blomqvist
went to the shallow water and found a piece of stone.
It was 3-4 cm long, and you could see 5 layers in it.
years later, Mr. Blomqvist contacted UFO investigators,
told his story and gave the piece of stone found in the
water. At that time, we had a board member in the FUFORA,
engineer Olavi Kiviniemi, who worked in the laboratorium
of a steel factory. He organized proper lab investigations
of the strange piece, also at labs of universities.
found out that the piece mostly was of iron, but there
were also small amounts of other materials: copper, zink,
magnesium, mangan, zirkonium, vanadium, titanium and crom.
They also found out that the stone had been in a temperature
of 650-800 degrees Celsius for a long time.
some investigators have proposed that the UFO piece found
in Kallavesi is residue from a traditional iron factory.
The piece resembles that kind of metal residue, but is
not totally similar.
many people who have had strong UFO experiences, it appeared
that Raimo Blomqvist had parapsychological sensitivity.
Later, he also said that he had met space beings who looked
like normal people.
