Observation done by people in the year 2018
All time is local time in Hessdalen, if no other info is given

Date: 01.09.2018 Time: ca.10:00 pm to ca 11:00 pm Place: Båttjønndalen, Hessdalen
Observers: Hege and Nils Ofstad
Hege and Nils was sitting on a small hill between Båttjønna and Langen. They saw a light, which they first believed was a carlight at mount Rognefjell. But the light started to move back and forth in front of mount Rognefjell. Both around the top of the mountain and far down on the hillsite. Sometimes it was just on the other side of the top of the mountain. This continued for more than an hour, from 10 pm to 11 pm.

Date: 25.08.2018 Time: 10:47 p.m. Place: Båttjønndalen, Hessdalen
Observers: Bjørn Lillevold, and his two sons Patrick and Daniel
Bjørn and his boys were driving on the mountain road Stereveien. They were on their way to lake Langen, further south. nn the roads last bend before Båttjønndalen, they see a big light over mount Fjellbekkhøgda. It is big, about 70% of the size of the moon. It moves fast towards the north and faded away after a very few seconds. The light could not be seen anymore. atrick said he could see a black object where the light had been. The light had one strong light in the front, and a smaller light in the back. These were connected with parts of a circle. This observation made a great impression on the observers.

Date: 12.08.2018 Time: 02:05 a.m. Place: Parking spot at Slettælet, Hessdalen
Observers: Anthea Molenaar and Mike van der Velde, from the Netherlands
Anthea and Mike had their campervan parked on the parking spot close to Slettælet, with the front of the campervan towards the north. Anthea was sitting inside, on the driver seat. At about 2.05 a.m. (in the night) she saw a bright light on her left side. That is in the direction West-North-West. She saw the light moved back and forth. She told her husband, Mike, who was outside, setting up the camera. That was not easy, because they did not bring the tripod. He had to find a way to put up the camera. Anthea went out of the car. She noticed the strong light continued moving back and forth faster now. About 5 minutes after Anthea went out of the car, the light suddenly disappeared. She said the total observation time was between 8 and 9 minutes. Mike took several pictures of the light. It is hard to say if the movement of the light in the pictures is due to movement of the camera or movement of the light, or both.

Nattis and his girlfriend was camping halfways up to mount Rognefjell. At 9:50 pm he saw a light down on the right side of the Hersja river. The light moved straight, from left to right, with the same speed all the time. It could be moving along the river. The shape was round and the colour was white. He saw it for about 5 to 6 seconds. His girlfriend did not see it, because she was looking for the phenomena up on the sky.
