This is pretty exciting, so I am going to post about it, even though the sources are in Norwegian only for now.
Scientists from Høyskolen i Østfold have presented a new piece of photographic evidence, as well as some interesting theories, about the UAP
phenomenon they have been documenting in Hessdalen in Norway for several years.

This, rather unspectacular image, have created a great deal of both bafflement and excitement at a geological congress at the
European Geosciences Union
in Wienna, because it is a possible clue to what might be behind the Hessdalen phenomenon.
It also, as it was taken under specific and controlled conditions, documents the existence of the phenomenon, and might even confirm some of the
things the local population has been saying for years. One such thing is that the phenomenon is able to light up the ground, which is an effect shown
in the photo.
The researchers have been sitting on the photo for almost two years. The reason they have been "saving" it for just this congress in order to prove
both that the phenomenon is real and worthy of study, and because the phenomenon has been photgraphed in the same place before. This might be an
important point in understanding how these "balls of light" might be created, says scientists Bjørn Gitle Hauge and Anna-Lena Kjøriksen from
Høyskolen i Østfold. They hope to get more scientists interested in studying the phenomenon, which might lead us closer to understanding the driving
forces behind it.

The actual photo is an exposure taken automatically on the 16. september 2015, at 21.11. The camera in question takes exposures at 5 second intervals.
The photo is taken approximately one and a half hour after sundown.
Scientists, who were monitoring the cameras on monitors in a tent, ran out upon seing the exposure, but the ball of light was then gone. It is not
found on the previous exposure or in the next one, taken 5 seconds later. The photo shows a ball of light, approximately 1,5 m in diameter (and
estimated at around 1 cubic meter in volume) hovering at a height of approximately 30 meters and about 100 m distant from the camera. It was taken
with a spectral filter on an automatic camera, and that is why you see the rainbow effect above and below the actual phenomenon.
The scientist has a 95% confidence that this represents an actual photgraph of the Hessdalen Phenomenon, having ruled out sun-dogs, camera reflections
and other possibilities.
So, ladies and gentlemen, this is, courtesy of Høyskolen i Østfold, with 95% confidence a bona-fide UAP.
Now, what it actually is - physically or electrically - is something they are still trying to work out, but there are some intriguing theories being
formed. One being investigated is that the phenomenon represents naturally forming plasmas. I guess time will tell, but at least we can be 95% sure it
is really there.
