Strange UFO-shaped structure shows up on Norwegian lake

An object resembling a flying saucer has appeared on a lake in Norway, but not everything is as it seems.
Photographs of a large, silvery, oval-shaped object floating on the surface of Norway's Hardanger Fjord in Hagardsneset sparked a great deal of intrigue on social media earlier this month.

Its resemblance to a UFO - in particular the chrome spaceship from the 1980s movie Flight of the Navigator - prompted suggestions that it could be evidence of extraterrestrial visitors.

As it turns out, however, this mysterious looking object is in fact a unique art exhibition that has been designed to resemble the silvery scales of a fish.
Known as "The Salmon Eye", it weighs 1,256 tons and was designed by Danish studio Kvorning Design with funding from Sondre Eide - CEO of salmon farming firm Eide Fjordbruk.

The installation is entirely flee-floating and reportedly contains four interior floors featuring a cinema and several exhibition floors, though exactly what is being exhibited inside remains a mystery for now.

"Salmon Eye will become an international design icon for Eide Fjordbruk and revolutionise sustainable aquaculture in the future," said Kvorning Design CEO Arne Kvorning.

"I am convinced that the floating aquaculture information center and art installation will be setting new standards for sustainable aquaculture in every aspect. Design, interaction, research, technology, and immersive experiences."

Looks like one of those rubber half deflated exercise balls. Also looks like a gianT waste of time. Not impressed. Far from a ?Ufo? the guy must be bored to death. Oh and the reveal was about as fun as cleaning.

I wonder why it is so heavy, wouldn't it sink when it weighs 1256 tons?

What's a "ufo shape"? Surely that's an oxymoron considering a ufo is unidentified? I'm being pedantic sorry.

Flight of the Navigator Excellent movie. One of my favorites growing up, then watching it with my boy many years later made it even better.
