Norwegian UFO-mystery solved?

The so-called Hessdalen lights have been seen ever since the 1940’s and have since 1984 been monitored by volunteers.

Hessdalen is a small valley in the central part of Norway. At the end of 1981 through 1984, residents of the Valley became concerned and alarmed about strange, unexplained lights that appeared at many locations throughout the Valley. Hundreds of lights were observed. At the peak of activity there were about 20 reports a week.

Project Hessdalen was established in the summer of 1983. A field investigation was carried out between 21st of January and 26th of February 1984. Fifty-three light observations were made during the field investigation.

An automatic measurement station was put up in Hessdalen in August 1998.

According to the scientists, it is now clear that the phenomenon is not UFO-related, but are luminous balls containing some form of energy.

– We have pictures which show the optical spectre, and can therefore determine which elements they are made of, says researcher Erling Strand of the Oestfold College.

However, he says much work remains before he is ready to give the final answer.

Despite what the above report might say, the fact that scientists haven’t found evidence of nuts and bolts U.F.O’s hasn’t brought them any closer to solving the mystery. If anything however it is a measure of the limits of modern scientific materialism and its arrogance.

Our ancestors may have viewed these “luminous balls containing some form of energy” as angels or demons or fairies or elemental beings. Whatever they are though they could well be the manifestations of another world and our ancestors may have been closer to understanding what they were than modern day scientists.
