Location: Västerås (Sweden),
Shape: Sphere
Very low flying orbs (with plenty of high quality video footage)

Introduction: I live in Sweden and I have been seeing these strange spheres and I have recorded quite alot of video footage. This is not a one-time sighting, they’ve been around for quite a while now so that’s why I’m able to record them. I started to film them in 2015, but I have been watching them for a long time. I usually only see them during the summer. Most of the time they fly around one spot near some trees (the spot in my video), but I have seen similar lights at other locations, which I unfortunately did not capture on video.

Description of objects (Video: They are tiny and agile small spheres of light, completely silent. You can watch my video. I’ve seen them do all kinds of maneuvers. They seem to appear out of nowhere and then just disappear, there doesn’t seem to be any solid object behind the light. When I first saw them I thought they were just fireflies or maybe some other insects but as I continued to observe them I realized they couldn’t be insects. I’ve also seen other unexplainable lights that indicate to me that they’re intelligently controlled. Unfortunately I didn’t film it and cannot prove it so therefore I won’t bother explaining those sightings. But I still do have plenty of footage. I have tried to approach them with and without my camera but then they simply won’t show up, like they were never there.

Possible Explanations

1. Light reflecting off of insects. I thought a lot about this, but I’m sure they can’t be just reflections. They are way too bright, and there is clearly no light source so they can’t be reflections. There are street lamps a few meters away where you can compare real insect light reflections with the UFO’s, they don’t look the same at all.

2. Fireflies/Lightning bugs. They cannot be fireflies, since we don’t have fireflies in Sweden. If you’ve ever seen fireflies in real life, you would understand. Otherwise I suggest you watch a youtube of fireflies and see for yourself. Fireflies don’t fly like that, and they can’t get as bright as these objects.

3. Drones/Unmanned Aerial Vehicles or other man-made technology. They can’t be drones because they fly way too fast and make abrupt changes in direction & speed which you can see in the video. If these were drones they would’ve crashed into each other or into the trees. They fly too close to the trees and each other. In some of my footage you can also see that there’s no solid object behind the light.

4. Extraterrestrial explanation. Perhaps they could be some kind of extraterrestrial technology. Why would aliens do this? What is the point of coming all the way to earth to just fly around like this? It would be very hard to prove this explanation so I won't jump to any conclusions. They are still unknown to me.
