      Thanks Joe, for your message.

      I fully subscribe to the above. I too have much admiration for Dr.
      Teodorani and his EMBLA team. They indeed deserve our congratulations.
      Here we have group of scientists who show the courage to tackle a UFO
      phenomenon. This is the help that Erling Strand (who started the research
      in Hessdalen in the early 80s) of Project Hessdalen needed so much.

      A non-PDF version of the report EMBLA's Hessdalen research can be
      found here (it's the preliminary report) :


      During their stay in Hessdalen last August the EMBLA team observed quite
      some interesting anomalous light phenomena (which some among us would call
      "UFOs"). I found one of the the most remarkable sightings by this
      scientific team the "dark triangle". A quote form the EMBLA report:

      <start quote>

      TYPE 5: Three co-moving lights in the sky: the "Triangle".
      Distance: undetermined, Direction: from south to north,
      Position: moving in the sky from 20 deg (low over horizon) up to
      80 deg along a maximum circle which was close to the zenith,
      Speed: about 30 deg/min, Color: white-yellow, Noise: none,
      Duration: 2-3 minutes, Regime of motion: complex of 3
      co-moving lights in an exact triangular disposition, which first
      moved linearly and slowly towards the observers, then
      stopped for 5-10 seconds at an height of about 80 deg while doing a
      90 deg rotation around its axis, lastly slowly disappeared (about
      over the observers vertical), Number of Events: 1, Luminosity:
      slowly changing from Jupiter-like intensity to star-like
      intensity, Shape: point-like lights disposed in a geometrical
      configuration (exact equilateral triangle) - underlying dark
      triangular object visible with binoculars, Radioactivity:
      normal level, Height above ground: undetermined, Angular
      Dimensions of the Triangular Complex: 3-5 deg, Time: 24.00 -
      24.15, Witnesses: 4 (2 groups), Sighting Locations:
      Asp�skj�len and near Finns�h�gda. Report type: visual,
      binocular, intensified/IR and Geiger.

      To our Dutch subscribers:

      The upcoming UFO Newsletter (UFO-Nieuwsbrief) will feature a translation
      into Dutch of the preliminary EMBLA report by dr. Massimo Teodorani and
      his colleagues.
