'UFO' spotted over Asker

Helene Solberg glanced out her window on a dark wintry afternoon
earlier this week and saw something she won't soon forget.
Luckily, her family's video camera was close at hand.

Solberg, who lives in a village with the same name in Asker,
west of Oslo, first called her husband while marveling at the
comet-like flying object that soared through the late afternoon

It was just after 2pm, when dusk already starts settling over
southern Norway at this tiime of year, when Solberg noticed the
object with a long, bright tail. She excitedly called her
husband Stig Solberg, who reminded her that their video camera
was lying on a table in the living room. Just the night before,

Helene Solberg then grabbed the video camera and started

three minutes of it captured on tape, before the unidentified
flying object disappeared from view.

"Can I explain what it was? Absolutely not," Stig Solheim told
Aftenposten's Internet edition Thursday night after sharing the

He said he determined that the comet-like object came out of the
west and disappeared to the south. He also sent the video to the
astrophysics department at the University of Oslo, where a
professor thought the object might have been a plane.

Solheim disagrees. "It absolutely did not look like a plane," he
said. "When we look out the window in the other direction, we
sometimes see planes. But we have never seen a plane in the
direction where my wife was filming."
