Date: 05.09.2014 Time: 06:00 A.M. (about) Sted: Hessdalen south.
Observer: Per Moen
Per had just got out of bed, and gone out the front door, just to "feel" the day. While he was standing outside he became aware of a light towards the north, down by the road. It looks like it was standing just by above the road ditch, with the left part reaching just out in the road and the right part reaching just out in the field. The light was red on the right side and white on the left side.

It was some trees between Per and the light. Per decided to go in and up to the terrace, to get a better view. During the few second it took to go in and up the the terrace, the intensity of the light had decreased a lot. During just some few more seconds the light was gone. It was as it turned off, slowly. Total observation time was about 30 seconds.

Date: 05.05.2014 Time: 12:59 a.m. Place: Hessdalen south.
Observer: don't want her name to be published
The weather was light cloudy when the lady in the house woke up close to 01.00 in the night. From the bedroom she saw a light outside. It looked like it was standing still, above the horizon, in direction south-west, at mount Berghøgda. The size of the light was big, as the size of a fingernail on outstretched hand. The main colour was white, with some red and yellow. After a short while she saw the light was moving toward the west, and stoppet. The size become much smaller during the movement. Some seconds later it moved back to the first location and stopped. It was then standing still for about half an minute before it moved fast upwards, with a angle of about 45° towards south east. She went up and contacted her husband, who was in the dining room, but the light was disappeared. The observation period was 2 minutes, from 12:59 a.m. til 1:01 a.m..

Date: 18.01.2014 Time: 10:11 P.M. Place: Hessdalslia
Observers: Rune and Kristian Bremseth
Rune Bremset was driving up Hessdalslia late this Saturday evening. His son Kristian was sitting in the front seat. Rune's daughter Malin, and her friend Marthe Vik Vårhus was sitting in the back. Just before the last turn before you are at the top, saw Kristian and Rune a light crossing the road, less than 100 m from the car and 20 to 30 m above the trees. Kristian saw the light first. It had the colours red, green and yellow, and it had a tail. The size was as a basketball. The light was coming from mount Rognefjell with a high speed, crossing the road in front of the car, and disappered downhill. Malin and Marhe did not see it, because they were in the back and it happened so fast.
