Subject: New Hessdalen Lights Paper

The Hessdalen Light Project has been investigating anomalous
balls of floating light in the Hessdalen Valley region of Norway
for about thirty years. It's affiliated with Ostfold University


Recently a new study was published containing interesting
findings from their work.


The report indicates that a recent discovery of an abandoned
sulfer mine in the region may have given insight into the
phenomena. The authors propose that sulfuric acid leached into
the ground from this mine may have created a 'battery like'
effect to store charge. Then, between the ground and the
atmosphere, a charge potential may have built up much like
lightning between clouds and ground. When pockets of sulfuric
acid becomes vaporous and free floating in the atmosphere, they
might ignite, forming free floating spherical plasmas.
Interestingly, they believe such pockets of sulfuric acid vapor,
whether ignited or not, should reflect RADAR. Therefore, it is
posible that an ignited plasma ball would be both visible and
reflect radar.

If correct, in cases where sulfuric acid has leached into the
ground, it might provide an explanation for plasma orbs that are
commonly seen and reported as certain kinds of UFOs. These could
have a natural explanation. That might also explain apparent
merging and disappearance of such phenomena as energies
supporting plasma discharge are consumed.

This does not 'solve' the UFO question. In particular, it does
not answer issues surrounding CE2 and CE3 type events. Nor does
it answer questions about daylight or night sightings of objects
with apparent physical structure. But, it could potentially be
used to rule out a range of other observations of a less
physical nature, particularly in those areas where it can be
confirmed that sulfuric acid has leached into ground water and
land close to repeated 'orb' style observations.
