Eyewitnesses of the inexplicable: the media recalled the Finnish "Dyatlov pass"

An alien in Finland. Dyatlov Pass in Finnish

Fifty-two years ago, two men met an unexplained phenomenon in the forest, which they described as a UFO and an alien. By the next anniversary of the Finnish "Dyatlov Pass", as the world media call an abnormal case on the outskirts of the village of Imjärvi, we remind you of the shocking story of 52 years ago. It happened on January 7, 1970, in the Finnish forest. After an unexplained emergency, forester Aarno Heinonen and farmer Esko Viljo became famous all over the world. In the afternoon, the friends went on a ski trip, but they met "something" in the forest.

The appearance of a flying saucer and an alien

They heard a growing buzzing from above, saw a powerful light in the sky, which moved from the north in the form of a bright cloud. The cloud described a large circle in the sky and went straight at the skiers, descending. The buzzing grew louder.

As the skiers themselves later told, they were in shock from what they saw and could not move. From the cloud, judging by their stories, a UFO appeared.

The huge disk began to descend, it was enveloped in a red-gray fog, which became thinner and more transparent. The ship was completely round. When he leaned towards us, we saw that he had a dome at the top. Along the lower edge, there was an elevated part, on which three hemispheres or domes were located at an equal distance. Just then, a hole suddenly appeared in the bottom of the ship, from which a pipe stretched out, emitting an intensely bright light. Which created an outlined circle of black color on the snow.

Heinonen told:

The bright light was so bright that it was almost blinding, the men squinted and tried to orient themselves. Around then, Heinonen felt as if he had been thrown back by some invisible force. And then he saw something ahead.

I don't think we said anything to each other at all. We were absolutely amazed. We saw the light move several times before stopping and intensively illuminating a patch of snow about a meter in diameter with a dark edge, almost coal-black and 1 cm wide. I stood perfectly still. Suddenly it seemed to me that someone grabbed me by the waist from behind and pulled me back. I think I took a step back and immediately noticed the creature. He was standing in the middle of the light beam with a black box in his hands.

A pulsing yellow light emanated from a circular hole in the box. He was about 1 meter tall, with very thin arms and legs. His face was like pale wax. The nose was more of a hook than a nose. The ears were very small and narrowed to the head. The creature was dressed in some kind of jumpsuit made of light green fabric and a conical helmet shining like metal. The creature stood in the middle of the bright light and glowed like phosphorus, but his face was very pale. His shoulders were very thin, with arms as thin as a child's. The white gloves reached to the elbows, and the fingers were bent like claws around the black box.

He explained it like this:

UFO over the forest

This mysterious alien was standing there in the light with its black box, which was illuminated by an eerie yellow light. The red mist was suddenly everywhere again, blocking their view and becoming so thick that they could hardly see each other anymore. Purple sparks could be seen dancing in the fog, and the whole scene was simultaneously frightening, surreal, and beautiful. The entity then waved the box up to point it directly towards the stricken people. And the fog and sparks flew in their direction, which caused them nausea and numbness in their legs.

The pulsing light was very bright, almost blinding. It was very quiet in the forest. Suddenly, a red-gray fog descended from the object, and large sparks flew from the illuminated circle of snow. The sparks were like candles, about 10 cm long, red, green and purple. They swam quite slowly in long curves; many of them hit me, but although I expected them to burn me, at first I didn't feel anything. My right foot was closest to the light. The whole leg was stiff and sore. My foot felt like it was under anesthesia.

Heinonen said:

The strange fog grew thicker and thicker until the humanoid and his bizarre ship suddenly disappeared. Two men managed to get out of there, feeling nausea, numbness all the way. Later they will have health problems, including what they describe as black urine like "black coffee", facial swelling, headaches, vision, and memory problems.

Doctor's report after the examination

I think the men were shocked. Viljo was red-faced and slightly swollen. Both seemed distracted. They were talking fast and incoherently. I didn't find anything clinically wrong with Heinonen. He didn't feel well, but it could have been a stomach reaction to the shock. The symptoms described by him are similar to those after radiation exposure.

Unfortunately, I didn't have a tool to measure radiation. As for the black urine, it seems inexplicable. Maybe there could have been blood in it, but it can't go on like this for several months. If blood samples were taken, they could reveal changes in his blood. Both men seemed sincere, and I don't think they made it up. I'm sure they were in shock when they came to me; something must have scared them.

The doctor who examined them, Dr. Pauli Kayanoha, said:

Opinion of a physicist

Scientists became interested in the incident. One of them, physicist Olof Fredriksson

The real existence of the event that caused the shock is beyond doubt... The victims have a parallel pattern of symptoms.

He said:

Believe it or not?

All this is really very painful and inexplicable, and since both men were known to be honest and reliable. Ufologists at that time considered this case as very promising. By the way, a special group worked at the scene of the emergency for several days. Its representatives took soil and water tests but found nothing suspicious. However, Heinonen will "muddy the waters" in later years.


For example, he claimed that between 1970 and 1972 he had more than two dozen UFO encounters. Sometimes with the participation of a beautiful blonde alien who appeared and talked to him. This humanoid was described as possessing a kind of spherical object and claimed to be over 180 years old. Sometimes he was accompanied by a dwarf creature about 1 meter tall, dressed in a gray suit with white stripes.

He also claimed that he had once received a green pen from her, but said that it was missing. He also complained that every time he tried to photograph the creatures, his camera dissolved into thin air or was knocked out of his hand by an invisible force.
The case is so surrounded by quirkiness that it is really quite difficult to understand how to treat it. Heinonen's later strange comments will certainly dispel skepticism about what was initially perceived as possibly a genuine message.

If we put the emotional part aside, we can note that the doctor indicated a state of shock, the physicist indicated that there was a state of shock. There are questions to the doctor who did not take blood and urine for analysis. The subsequent stories do not bear any criticism. The commission did not find any confirmation at the place of the alleged contact. Look at the folklore Finnish gnome, and the alien described by them.

Alien or gnome?

There are too many coincidences for the non-fiction of the story. As for black urine, the color change can be caused by the use of alcohol-containing products, as well as related body problems. The conclusions in our opinion are obvious. But the final decision is yours.
