What is behind Norway's Hessdalen lights ?

The project to study the lights has been tapering off as no one has come up with good theories and there's no indication that they will. As you've seen the people interested in studying it haven't done a perfect job of collecting data and these are the people who want better equipment and more elaborate (i.e. expensive) studies. They already had been using excellent equipment including a seismograph and even a powerful laser to shoot back at the lights. They had a Geiger counter but couldn't explain how they would use it to measure the radiation of something miles away.

A majority of the lights they studied were explained. They spent a lot of effort studying things that weren't mysteries at all.

The largest factor I think is that the phenomena itself is much rarer than it was back in the 80's so new studies are much less likely to return results.

Most frustrating thing when you see dubious YT videos entering scientific papers (G.S. Paiva, C.A. Taft, J. Atamos. Sol.-Terr. Phy. 80, 336 (2012)). How THAT did got passed reviewers is beyond me...

Another point, when I see remarkable results from Chinese team, who recorded ball lightning (J. Cen, P, Yuan, and S. Xue, Phys. Rev. Lett. 112, 035001 (2014))

and compare quality of the results above with that of B.G. Hauge, I tend to think that the teams in Hessdalen are beating around the bushes with a little progress since research started there back in 1983.

It's been far from satisfactorily explained in my opinion. One of the more bizarre events in the area was the unexplained and surgical upheaval of a massive volume of earth.

The two are completely unrelated.

Nobody claims it is "satisfactorily" explained, just that we have a very good idea what is most likely is. A Form or several of Aerial Plasma.

Ridiculous to claim that cut grass and arial lights are related anyway. The only commonality is roughly geographic location. Does not take much to excite you does it.

But what of the natural battery theory? Is this as ' no good ' as all the other theories too? How so?

I didn't realise the extent of this phenomenon, but I just have found that this exists:

I like it. I'd guess it's probably the earth and atmosphere doing some electromagnetic tricks ... and somehow creating these Lights or plasma
