Hessdalen, - daylight UFO sightings:

Today's post is from my point of view, as the author of this blog, a boring post to write, but hopefully of interest to my readers. I also believe that it is a very necessary post. The content is taken from Arne Wisths book from 1983; “The UFO mystery in Hessdalen” - entirely from chapter nine of the book, which covers UFO sightings in the Hessdalen area in 1982 - mostly daylight sightings.

1981 - 1984 was the most intense period in Hessdalen where it was made several observations per day - up to thirty a week. From 1985 to the present day it is made (or notified) a thirty observations on an annual basis.

Some readers probably wrinkles on the nose of sightings made back in the eighties, and believes this is old news. I believe, however, it is important to know about these early sightings and have them as a backdrop when you read about, and consider recent observations of the type “lights in the sky”. Internationally Hessdalen is known under the name "Hessdalen lights." I want to differentiate and create a more complete picture of what has been observed, and still is being observed in Hessdalen.


Lars Lillevold and his family live in Hessdalen. - 18 January 1982 changed my life completely, he says. - What I saw amazed me so that I have to admit that others may laugh at me and see me as a lunetic. But I know what I saw.

Illustration; Rune Øverby. "The light was blinding. It looked as if "it" had a red, hairy like smoke that it surrounded itself with."

This evening Lars had an errand outside his house. The time was approx. 19.30. - Over the outhouse I saw something big, bright red. It must have been at least 30-40 meters long. As a loaf of bread it stood there, completely still. I expected to hear sounds. I listened, but heard only the murmur of the forest. Then "it" moved. The light was blinding. It looked as if "it" had a red, hairy like smoke that it surrounded itself with. It moved in a northerly direction up the valley. He shouted at his wife who saw the lights before "it" disappeared. - Since it was a craze for me, I had to see this again. And I have done many times later. Time and again I asked myself what this might be. I'm surprised that the authorities do not take this more seriously. I'm glad that others see, and want as many people as possible to do.

A man who has seen UFOs both day and night, is Jon Aspås. In late February, he called his neighbor, Martin Aspås, who lives a short distance further up the valley. The time was quarter past nine in the morning. Martin sat and ate breakfast and looked out the kitchen window when he saw an object in the air just to the south, in the direction of the houses to Jon Aspås.

Do you see anything over mount Rogne? Is it the same object that we have seen in the evening?

Jon ran outside the house. There it was, shiny and metallic. It was oblong and somewhat flattened below. It looked like it had a raised platform at the top, says Jon. It went south at an altitude that could not be more than a few hundred meters.

The following morning he saw the UFO again. Then it was also observed by others near Røros. At this second daylight observation, they could study the object for 42 minutes, as long as it stood quietly in the valley between Ålen and Hessdalen. Then it went straight east before it sat up a tremendous speed and disappeared out of sight.

Jon saw the UFO once again in March. It was passing the valley in daylight, but very fast. Once it went four times between the valley and mount Finnsåhøgda, back and forth.

Berit Mary Kjerrengvold lives in Hessdalen. Tuesday before Easter she was on her way from Ålen towards Røros in her car. With her she had an acquaintance, Anita Trygstad from Røros. Approx. at. 13.00 they were a mile south of Ålen, on a slight incline. On the right side, they discovered something dark that was not moving over the treetops. The object appeared elongated and were sort of standing at an angle. It was metallic silver and quite large. The sun was up, and should reflect the object's metallic color. It did not, it looked more as if the metal had its own "glow". They did not stop the car and saw the object for approx. 20 to 25 seconds. In October, she and her husband saw a large object with two bright lights in front and a red at the rear.

"In October, she and her husband saw a large object with two bright lights in front and a red at the rear."

Ingulf Rotan from Ålen have a cabin by Øyungen. 16.03. 1982 approx. at. 19.30 he saw a bright, shiny object coming through a hole in the clouds. It looked like it came straight from above, but below the clouds it flattened out after having made a "spiral movement". It continued to maneuver with strange turns until it disappeared behind Skarvan.

32 year old Aud Rønning was 23.03. 1982 approx. at. 22.40 on her way home to Haltdalen after a trip to Oppdal. Next to the bridge by Gilset she saw something she thought was the moon. Then she discovered that "the moon" was elliptical, with a slightly reddish, glow above. It came from her right over the roadway in front of her. She turned around. The color was sharp, orange-yellow. Right towards the car the object came, and Mrs. Rønning was startled for a moment:
Would it drive her down?

She estimated the Ufos altitude to be only three or four feet above the ground. She believed that it may not have been farther than 10-15 feet away when it suddenly went straight into the air and disappeared. At the same time, the car engine died out. It lasted just a few seconds, she says, but the experience is impressed in her mind.

Per Moen saw "something" in March 1982, at Øyungen. - It was in the evening, and I saw something I thought was a star among the trees. It was quiet and it sort of pulsated. Then came a powerful flash that lit up the whole area, and then it was gone. The object just disappeared in front of me.

- Another evening, I was at a similar place to see three of them at once. They came sliding inwards, two above and one below. Suddenly we saw a fourth object. Personally, I believe that it came right up from the ground. They formed a long N-formation. For several minutes I could study them. Suddenly there was the same as in the first case: they just disappeared right before my eyes.

During the autumn of 1982, I have seen similar things several times. One day I drove with my in-laws north in Hessdalen. They had never seen something, and wanted to have a look after all the talk about UFOs. Then came a bright "thing" towards us and turned up the river valley. The observation lasted for 2-3 minutes. Later, at 23 o'clock, we again saw it from the "plateau". It came through the clouds, down sharply at high speed and disappeared behind Finnsåhøgda.

Even in the bright nights of the summer 1982, there were reports of UFO sightings. A family from Bærum who were on holiday, have been unwilling to come forward and tell what they saw in June, when they were on vacation in Øyungen. But they have revealed to a person that they saw an enormous flying "thing" that "let out" three small "things" that flew with tremendous speed. The family ended their vacation and went home.

8. March 1982 Torbjorn Drag Myrhaug was driving a car into Hessdalen with his wife Mary and daughter Hallgerd.

The time was 22.50, and suddenly the family in the car saw an orange colored light to the left of them. They went out of the car and stood and stared in disbelief at what played out before them. - The moon reflected in the object, and we could through the light clearly see that it had a metllic color. The size was about like a car, and it was pointed in front and somewhat blunt at the rear. As a ghost plane the object passed without a sound. In the autumn the whole family was to study a similar phenomenon from their living room window, and later they have seen it several times. In August, the daughter Hallgerd with his grandmother, Ella Hegseth and her friend, Eli Benoa were in a cabin near Øyungen. Then they saw something that flashed in red, just west of them. This "red" thing was slowly moving, and they could observe it for several minutes.

The most remarkable happened in daylight around 16.30 on 23 October. Tom and Hallgerd was driving from Hessdalen towards Ålen. The road is very curvy there, and Torbjorn had to concentrate on driving.

- It was big as an airplane and silver metallic. No windows I could see where "it" glided over us, maybe a hundred meters away. It was rather pointed in front, and right behind I think it sort of was a bump. How long I saw it, I'm not sure. Maybe a minute. When we finally stopped, it was gone over the mountain.

Jon Arvid Aspås always spend the summer on a farm at Hessjøen with his family. It is located on a hill with good view of the valley. The family consists of his wife Solfrid, Ole Martin 14 years, Ann Kristin 13, Joar 11 and Sture 10.

Jon Arvid have seen UFOs many times, but only as a light, except for one occasion when he also claimed to have seen metal and windows.

The sun was still up at 19.25 o'clock 3 september 1982. The sky was clear, and Jon Arvid and the kids were outside. Then Solfrid saw something in the sky that came from the south, and she shouted at the others. - The object was like a fuselage without wings: Silver - metallic bright in color. (This is confirmed by the rest of the family). It was probably about. 2 km. Away. - It turned eastward, and came a bit east of us. It was so close that we could observe it from underneath. We saw absolutely no wings. It reminded us of the old airships that we've seen pictures of. No sound was to hear.

Reconstruction; "The object was like a fuselage without wings: Silver - metallic bright in color."

Jon Arvid ran to fetch his binoculars. As he came back, the “thing”disappeared into a cloud. - It was not big, says Solfrid. We wondered that we could not see it coming out of there. But it was gone.

23. October 1982, ie the same day as Hallgerd Drag Myrhaug saw "something" from her father's car in broad daylight, was Edvin Kværnes outside his house in Ålen. It was 16.40 when he over Ålen saw something he thought was an airplane. It went very slowly on the north course. He studied it carefully. It seemed much larger than a regular plane, he thought. It was difficult to judge the height of the craft, but Kværnes son is a pilot, and he thought it had the same height as his son used to hold over the area. Maybe around 5000 feet.

Kværnes tried to hear engine sounds from the plane. He listened. Nothing was to hear. And it went all too slowly. The plane turned east. But it had no wings! Startled Kværnes studied the flying object closer. It glistened in a silvery hull, but how closely he looked, he could not see the wings. As an old-fashioned airship it slid off. In three - four minutes he observed the object before it disappeared.

Kværnes was one of those who in January had seen the UFOs in Hessdalen, the first time north of the house of Martin Aspås. At that time, they saw it came gliding silently with two reddish light behind and "some strange light" in front. They saw the lights in front of the mountain, so it could not be an airplane. Almost every day after this was Kværnes up on the "plateau" and from there he made many observations of unexplained lights.

One autumn day he was at Øyungen along with seven other people. Then came the UFO he had seen the first time back - the one with two lights behind. And this time they saw clearly that it had a light in front. - One of the lights, I think was blue, says Kværnes. - You could sort of make out a dark mass in the middle. The UFO moved slowly and disappeared in the north. This happened at 19.30 o'clock at night, and the weather was fine and clear. Later, Kværnes saw a UFO once from his car in November.

Ole O. Baka is from Ålen. Sunday 24 October, he and his son Oddleif were on a trip in Båttjønndalen along with a colleague, Per Sten Lien. It was sunny and calm weather. The time could be around 15.45. Suddenly, they noticed something they thought was a plane on a northerly course. They saw it glide slowly toward mount Fjellbekkhøgda, and it shone in the metal as the aircraft turned and went south in Hessdalen. They saw that it had no wings, and that it was moving very slowly. The object was shining - and large. The did not hear any sound.

They agreed that it could not be a plane. It was more like a helicopter, for it had sort of a thickening in the middle. But a helicopter is not silent.

Ole Bendheim and his son Peter was on his way through the valley to Ålen by car on 24.10. 1982. The time was 15.40. They drove around a curve, so Bendheim had a good grip on the steering wheel. Suddenly he gripped even harder. What on earth was this? For a moment he thought that what he saw was a reflection in the window. But no, he saw it through the windshield and side window. It was a huge object in the sky and it looked like an aluminum pan in color. It took some time before Peter saw the same as his father.

Illustration; Rune Øverby. "It must have been twice as big as a truck with a trailer. His son Peter thought it was even bigger. Any plane, it could certainly not be, said Bendheim."
The object was sliding down the mountain and disappeared for a moment at the forest edge. There it was sort of hanging over a plantation. It looked as if its length covered the entire planting area. Bendheim had slowed down, and the car went forward at snail's pace. Was there no one else nearby who saw this? A few hours before, there was a swarm of people in the mountains and valley. Most were hunters, as it was hunting season. Now he saw none.

- It reminded me of a movie, this that played out over the treetops in front of us. It seemed so supernatural. Could it be a mirage? As we could see, was "the thing" only three or four hundred yards beyond us. It should have been twice as big as a truck with a trailer. His son Peter thought it was even bigger. Any plane, it could certainly not be, said Bendheim. The object glided slowly along. Oblong, silvery, and the front ... there was something that moved, there?

In front of the object, it looked like it was a "dent" in the hull. Was it an opening there? Did they see cross through the object at this point? Was it the woods in the background they saw? Or was there something inside the vehicle that moved?

Bendheim've thought and thought about this. - The sight was so fantastic, so we forgot to study the details, he said. - At least there were no visible marks on the hull, it was completely blank. It was just this weird front. No light. No sound to hear.

Bendheim also believe that it was something that resembled rods moving in front of the vehicle. They were suddenly gone. - If we had a camera with us, we would have plenty of time to shoot. We saw this in seven to eight minutes. Afterwards, I thought that the word camera was not in our thoughts. Maybe we would not have taken a picture even if we had been able to. The visual impression overwhelmed us. We forgot everything.

"Oblong, silvery..."
The object disappeared behind a hill, and we saw it again. - Had not Peter been with me, I would not have mentioned this to anyone, said Bendheim. - What should one really believe? I have no idea what it might have been. Mirage or ... well, I do not know what. The military has been here and asked me out. I could only say that this was what we saw.


This collection of daylight sightings reports represent only a small excerpt of what was observed in Hessdalen during the great flap in the 80s. The total number of observations are ​​enough to fill books - and of a nature (close range, with the terrain in the background, etc.) that natural explanations, - like planes etc. can be excluded.

Still it is done daylight sightings of solid, metallic objects in Hessdalen and the surrounding area. As previously mentioned in this blog, the researchers estimate the percentage of solid objects to be somewhere between 5% (Teodorani) and 15% (Strand). The remaining percentage of observations are “lights in the sky”.

We do not know if “lights” and solid objects are two very different phenomena, or whether in fact the same phenomenon is observed under different physical stages. One can for example speculate that these objects are surrounded by ionized gas (plasma) as part of the propulsion (?) and that what appears to be lights in the sky, in reality are solid, metallic objects surrounded by ionized air (plasma)?

In some cases, it seems to be a gradual transition from solid objects, to "plasma lights". (“...it was surrounded with red smoke”, “...the metal had its own "glow"”, “... a slightly reddish, glow above”, “... you could sort of make out a dark mass in the middle” etc.

Other cases indicate that these are two different things:

If the "plasma lights" is a kind of unknown natural phenomenon (related to the geophysical conditions in Hessdalen?) it is tempting to speculate whether Hessdalen is selected as the venue for the testing of exotic technology (“anti-gravity” aircrafts, etc.) precisely because of the presence of unknown natural phenomena which can serve as an alibi, cover and camouflage.

Or is the "plasma lights" artificial manufactured technology being tested - eg. electromagnetic weapons? In that case, one can speculate that the solid objects with silvery, metallic hulls, etc., are supervising the technology and manages / controls it?

Hessdalen, UFOs and the military:

Here is a short follow up on the previous post regarding military presence in Hessdalen:

Date: 14.06.2002 Time: 04:00 P.M. Place: Hessdalen
Observer: Rutt-Marry Moe
Rutt-Marry was driving home from the store in Hessdalen, which is located close by the church. When she was at Trøan, just north of the community centre, a little bit south of Heggset, did she see a black or blackgrey flying "thing" down at the river. It had wings, but no windows. It was flying towards south, very close to the river. She was looking down at it. She believde it was a plane, but wondered how a plane could fly so close to the ground.

Comment: Could this be a drone from the military? At 4.40 P.M. did I (Erling Strand) see a big plane from the military, fly very low in Hessdalen. Bjørn-Gitle Hauge and some friends was at mount Finnsåhøgda south, and saw the plane in the same elevation as they. This is very low for such a big plane.
Ref. Rutt-Marry Moe.

From Project Hessdalens webpage: http://www.hessdalen.org/observations/2002/

"It had wings, but no windows", Rutt Mary says.


My comment:

Why are military drones in Hessdalen, what mission do they have?

A military drone down in the river valley?!?

Sounds strange...

By the way, is it unlikely that this was a Norwegian drone in 2002.
According to Norwegian Wikipedia, it was a goal to introduce Norwegian drones by 2008; http://no.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drone

Please comment, guys;-)

New post tomorrow.

UFO, Hessdalen and NATO:

What most people may not know, is that it existed / exists a Nato base south of Hessdalen at Hummelfjell (1543 m.) (Locally, "Håmmålfjell") at Os. This was part of NATO's control and warning system created during the Cold War and was manned until 1986. At the most, the base had nearly 100 employees.

There is little information to be found around this, but here you can read a little (in norwegian).

There is still activity on the base.

In addition, it existed / exists a similar, but smaller, NATO base north of Hessdalen – at mount Bringen (1042 m.) in Haltdalen.

Here are some pictures of the plant;

This page provides information about how it was built huge underground plants in relation to the NATO bases:
Between Hummelfjell and Bringen, it is seven miles. Hessdalen is positioned exactly in the middle between these two stations. From the middle of Hessdalen it is 3,5 miles to Bringen in the north, and 3,5 miles to Hummelfjell in the south.
From google earth:

(The red line shows the direct linear distance from Hummelfjell to Bringen).

Haviks book (The UFO phenomenon, 1987) describes several times an elongated object with two yellow lights behind, and a little red light in front. Something like this:

This object passed usually from south to north, through the valley, in front of mount Finnsåhøgda (seen from Aspåskjølen). It is described that it was moving with a rolling "wave motion", and in one case there was described a buzzing / hissing sound from the object, - the equivalent of high voltage cables in wet weather. The object passed often at fixed times: one was talking about the "half past seven flight" and "half past ten flight."

Direction and altitude (according to the detailed descriptions in Haviks book) match remarkably well with the calculated linear distance between the two NATO bases – Bringen and Hummelfjell.

Was this testing of exotic propulsion? Was it a training "camp" of pilots and personnel to control these vessels? Or maybe it was patrolling / supervision with the other "exotic technology" that were/are placed in Hessdalen?
The other "exotic technology" - in the form of balls of light, etc. I think probably involves testing / development / training acc. electronic warfare, and electromagnetic weapons.

Can Hessdalen be the site of secret experimentation with "exotic technology" under the control of NATO?

Observation reports from Hessdalen in many cases indicate that we are dealing with an exotic form of propulsion. Among other, it is described non-aerodynamic maneuvers, such as "angle turns," "stair-like movements" etc. This indicates a type field propulsion / "anti-gravity."

We are not talking about any kind of "advanced planes," if someone would think that was the case.

In a series of posts on this blog, I have tried to show how there are indications that the UFO phenomenon can be traced back to Germany and the second world war. Probably the technology was imported into the United States with German engineers and scientists through "operation paperclip" and then disappeard into various black projects.

I have also attempted to argue that a form of "nuclear propulsion" may be the "missing link" between conventional propulsion and more spectacular, electromagnetic, "anti-gravity" propulsion systems.

It is not inconceivable that the United States - through NATO – (with help (?) of Norway) – would want to test this type of technology on Norwegian soil. Remote mountain areas like Hessdalen
would be perfect for this purpose.

Operation paperclip and UFOs

Operation paperclip was for many years a well-known "conspiracy theory", that probably many readers of this blog are aware of. After many documents have been released in recent years, and besides, this 600-page report, it is no longer a theory but conspiracy fact.

New York Times:

However, what is relatively new, and perhaps not so well known, is the extent of paperclip. As the report shows, it is not limited to the recruitment of scientists, but also largely import of Gestapo and SS personnel, as well as various parts of German intelligence. These were among others recruited for positions in the OSS, which later became the CIA.

Here is an article from BBC News  which focuses on how Operation Paperclip also involved import of new technology.

As the report shows, Paperclip consisted not only of scientists, but also of intelligence agents and officers, - recruitment of personnel (nearly 10 000 in number, large and small) and methods.

In addition, - new and advanced technology.

Paperclip can probably be related to a lot of what is discussed on different “conspiracy”-forums, and alternative internet pages. Among other, the program MK-ULTRA was initiated and implemented by the imported Nazis.

Obviously, a dose of Nazi ethics and ideology came along during the importation of technology and personnel ...
In the aforementioned article from BBC news:
"Supersonic Rockets, nerve gas, jet aircraft, guided missiles, stealth technology and hardened armor, were just some of the ground breaking technologies Developed in Nazi laboratories, workshops and factories, even as Germany was losing the war."

At the bottom of the article is also mentioned:

«Added to this, the large number of still-secret Paperclip documents has led many people, including Nick Cook, Aerospace Consultant at Jane's Defence Weekly, to speculate that the US may have developed even more advanced Nazi technology, including anti-gravity devices».
Said Nick Cook speculates in his book "the hunt for zero point"
regarding the possibility that recruited Nazi scientists, engineers and technicians may have had freedom, to such a degree, so that they could have continued their research quasi-independently, while the officially was employed and worked for the U.S. military.

Cook speculates whether they could have "reconstructed" themself as a "state within a state" - a "black projects coordination office" within structures that are otherwise under control of the U.S. government and military.

Perhaps it was something like this President Eisenhower had in mind when he warned against the moral and ethical dangers of the military-industrialcomplex's growing influence in American society during his farewell address in 1961?

This is demonstrated from a government document entitled "An evaluation of German Capabilities in 1945" - where foo fighters are known as "phoo bombs":

This technology, and related technology in the form of "circular wing aircraft" (which was under development in Nazi Germany), was probably one of the things one wanted to gain control of, and that may have been developed in U.S. black projects in the postwar years .
