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:
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.
