On 3 November 1996, Holmen was the site of a well documented UFO sighting. It was reported that an extremely bright object moved over the hamlet at considerable speed in a zig-zag pattern, making a strange buzzing noise. This attracted UFO enthusiasts and local radio station Radio Bardufoss, with the reports from the latter suggesting that ingestion of moonshine may have been the cause of the sighting. This caused anger in the township, and a subsequent boycott of the channel in protest.
