Well, some scientists have said that it's because of a gas in that area, when the light hits it, it glows. But I don't really believe that.
That's just a hypothesis, which has no solid scientific base and can therefore not be used as an explanation (unless one can explain the process that
would produce the hypothetical gas).
Also, which is constantly repeated in this excellent documentary (posted by the OP), there are so many different aspects of the phenomenon that it is
unlikely to have a single (natural) cause. It's a high and low altitude phenomenon, it seems to consist of both solid objects and light/energy
sources (of various spectrums and frequencies), single as well as multiple occurrences, appearance can vary from a few seconds to several hours, it
occurs year around, winter as well as summer, in various temperatures, day and night, etc.
Gas can't respond intelligently to laser beams, or hover over cars and shoot down light beams, or cut out two-ton turfs of moss and soil and place
them neatly at the side. Or can it?
There are still reports coming out of Hessdalen by the way...
