Here is my take on it all....
As a budding scientist (well I'm an astronomy/astrophysics/cosmology student) I was drawn to the Hessdalen phenomena and Project Hessdalen early on
when I started researching the UFO subject.
It is exactly this kind of long term, SCIENCE based monitoring of the phenomena in a hotspot location that MUFON (I know, stop laughing) should be
doing, rather than just collecting lights in the sky reports.
There are several places like Hessdalen in the US but unfortunately most of the UFO crowd seems more interested in UFOs as entertainment and will fork
over crazy amounts of money to hear the same or similar stories told in "UFO symposia" that amount to large campfire story telling sessions than to
actually fund real scientific research into the phenomena.
The reasoning baffles me because many also seem to cry out for "disclosure" or to be "taken seriously by science".
That has to start by doing research along the lines of Project Hessdalen not simply collecting anaecdotes (no matter how juicy they may be). Real
research is boring but a lot more productive long-term.
