Observation done by people in the year 2015
All time is local time in Hessdalen, if no other info is given

Date: 22.02.2015 Time: 7:30 P.M. Place: Vårhus, Hessdalen.
Observer: Bjørn M. Vik
A strong light was seen just above mount Finnsåhøgda, towards west. The light was a little bit to the right for and beneath the moon. The light was standing still for 30 minutes, before it disappeared suddenly.
The light from the moon was too strong for cam3 too see the light from "the phenomenon".

Ref. Bjørn M. Vik

Date: 20.01.2015 Time: (sometimes between) 8:35 and 8:45 P.M. Place: Hessdalen south.
Observer: Anonymous
A big light moved fast towards north, in the eastern side of the Hessdalen valley. It was without any sound and there were no flashing light. It was just a big strong light. The observer was sure it couldn't be any airplane.

Date: 09.01.2015 Time: 10:00 P.M. Place: Vårhus, Hessdalen.
Observer: Bjarne Lillevold
Bjarne was at home and was looking out of the window at the kitchen (towards south). He saw a big light south in Hessdalen. The light was red and nearly as big as the moon. The light was moving towards the north, in the direction to the automatic station (the Blue Box). When it was just above the Blue Box it stopped, split in two, and these two lights moved straight up with an enormous speed. It disappeared as in an explosion. - It was clear weather. Bjarne has seen a lot of light phenomena, but nothing like this before.

Approx view for the observer (in daytime)

X: Here was the observer. The arrow indicate the movement of the red light. (It was nighttime, and dark outside)

Date: 09.01.2015 Time: 21:13 Place: Hessdalslia
Observer: Bjørn Lillevold
Bjørn was driving his car from Hessdalen towards Ålen. When he was at the second turn in Hessdalslia, he saw a big strong light toward the north. It was as big as the moon, but much stronger. 10 seconds later it just "turned off".

Approx how the observer saw the phenomenon. (It was nighttime, and dark outside)
