Modern Mysteries


Hessdalen Light is an unexplained light phenomenon that occurs in Hessdalen valley of Norway. They were observed over 15 to 20 times per week from 1982 until 1984. Since then, the activity has decreased and now the lights are observed about 10 to 20 times per year. The Hessdalen light most often is a bright, white or yellow light of unknown origin floating above ground level lasting sometimes for more than an hour. Some of the lights drift gently through the sky for up to two hours, while others flash white or blue and streak through the valley, disappearing in seconds. There are quite a few theories, but one is pretty disturbing. They could be what's known as "coulomb crystals." These crystals form in plasma. Scientists have mostly created them from calcium particles. They change shape depending on their impurities. One of the shapes they form is a helix. That's not the disturbing part. What's disturbing is what could be creating the plasma that creates the crystals.In spite of numerous working hypotheses, there is no convincing explanation to the origin of these lights.
