Mysterious glowing orbs over the skies of NorwayOrbs of light hovering above Hessdalen, Norway, could be explained by metallic rocks and a sulphurous river running through the mystery of glowing Norwegian orbs been solved? Expert claims natural 'battery' creates the amazing light show Hessdalen lights can be as large as cars and have been spotted in Oslo Numerous theories have attempted to explain how they are created One claims metallic rocks divided by a sulphurous river provide a natural 'battery' which provides the right conditions for orbs Italian expert used samples from the site to make a battery to test this idea He thinks bubbles of ionised gas are made when sulphurous fumes from the River Hesja react with humid air, forming the balls of light But other experts think they're a type of ball lightning or made from plasmaThe presence of strange balls of light hovering over a valley in central Norway has baffled scientists for as the Hessdalen Phenomenon, the flashing orbs can be as large as cars and have even attracted attention from now scientists think the unusual lights could be formed by a natural 'battery' buried deep underground, created by metallic minerals reacting with a sulphurous river running through the theory is proven correct, it could open up a new way of storing 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, New Scientist computer engineer called Erling Strand from Ostfold University in Norway, has been looking for the physics behind the natural phenomenon since 1982, when frequent light shows captured the attention of the press and scientists set up Project Hessdalen in a bid to unite experts trying to unravel the mystery of how the mysterious orbs are formed, and was able to quickly rule out theories that the lights came from planes, vehicles or researchers noticed a small fluctuation in the areas' magnetic field before the formation of the lights, but when they measured radioactivity and seismic activity -- both of which could cause such a phenomenon -- there was nothing unusual at the site 248miles (400km) north of international team of experts then measured the size, shape and speed of the orbs using radar and spectral analysis to examine the elements that make up the revealed that the lights make no sound, appear to be cool and do not leave any scorch marks on the ground, unlike ball lightning. They do however sterilise an area upon contact, killing the soil Monari of the Institute of Radio Astronomy in Medicina, Italy, has studied the Hessdalen site since 1996 and found that rocks in the valley are rich in zinc and iron on one side of the river running through it, and rich in copper on the other side.'If there is sulphur in the water in the middle, it makes a perfect battery' he with a colleague from the University of Bologna, the scientists used rock samples to create a miniature valley and dunked them in river sediment. They found that electricity flowed between the two rocks and that this could light a Monari believes that bubbles of ionised gas are created when sulphurous fumes from the River Hesja react with the humid air of the valley. The geology also forms electromagnetic field lines in the valley, which could explain why the orbs of light move around.'This electrical field creates a path that could be the 'main road' of the lights inside the valley,' Dr Monari told Caroline Gitle Hauge, an electrical engineer at Ostfold University, thinks that the energy needed to make the clouds glow could come from the charge building are many other competing theories as to how the light may be formed, although the battery theory seems to be the most probable based upon current experts think some sort of plasma causes the light as when a gas ionises it forms a cloud of ions and electrons -- plasma -- that produce light. Plasmas can be cool to touch and can also kill microbes, but they require incredibly high temperatures and a huge supply of energy to be believe the lights are a type of ball lightning because similar balls of light spotted and analysed in China showed they were formed of silicon, iron and calcium -- which are present in the Hessdalen lights, along with the addition of an element called the Hessdalen lights do not appear when there is lightning, leading Dr Hauge to suggest another idea.
