Paasselkä Devils

Region of origin: Paasselkä Lake, Southern Savonia, Finland

An impact-crater lake formed during a meteor strike in the Triassic period, Paasselkä Lake is noted for its unusual depth, causing magnetic anomalies and the floating earth-lights seen around the lake and surrounding forest, named “devils” in traditional folklore. They were believed to be evil spirits, following fishermen around or guarding treasure buried near where they manifested.
