Date of Sighting: January 2, 2010
Time of Sighting: 8:20 AM Local Time
Location of Sighting: Near Trysil, Norway (See Map)

Description: I was on my way in a car to a ski resort in Norway (Trysil) from Sweden before the sun had risen a object appeared ("faded in") in the sky. It was round white with a flat top and was glowing a bright white surrounded with a ring of red light. It just appeared in sky from nowhere very fast and 2 seconds later it faded out, but this time much slower and disappeared. It appeared over a mountain approximately 500 meters above the mountain top and approximately 5,000 meters ahead of my car. The skies were very clear that day so you could see for a large distance.

A few minutes later a new light appeared, but this time at a much greater distance and still dead ahead of my car, but this time it stayed in the sky for a few minutes and then just faded out and disappeared.

I have no idea what it was, but I can say that it was not a airplane or the sun raising nor the moon. It looked to be about 30 meters in diameter and when it faded out it started to fade out at the top of the object and finished at the bottom. I did not have a camera so I couldn't take any pictures, but I draw a crappy sketch of the object in Paint. Enjoy the sketch!

Note: The witness has described two sightings of lights exhibiting unusual behavior. Nocturnal lights have been recorded and studied extensively in Norway and Sweden. To my knowledge the causation of these light phenomena has not been explained.
