You've transformed it from a UFO to a IHO - identified hanging object.

I never connected it to the Hessdalen lights. Interesting thought.

But it would probably be from an old truck. Something found around the Trent's farm.
Anyway, the French report did a better job with the photos than I did.

Isn't the explanation of experimental US craft (and not just because the Trents believed so) so much more likely than all the effort expounded on 'string theory' - curse the Trents for not living a more Nomadic existence, and having the audacity to depend on power wires, vehicle wing mirrors, and step-ladders.

The most compelling statements I've heard about the Trent case being legitimate was that the original UFO investigators who looked into it essentially said that the Trents were too stupid and unsophisticated to pull such a thing off. ...

Exhibit 2: Best Photograph
Paul Trent, Sheridan, Oregon, 11th May 1950
Upon close inspection with a modern high resolution monitor, and my post 1950's eyeballs...
Couldn't this photo be an eclipse? Going to check date and location against Earth to Moon eclipse timings.
If I'm being honest, it looks like the moon, being partially eclipsed, with really bad ancient photo technology*1950/horrible exposure.
