Bjarne was out at home when he suddenly saw a flashing, cigar shaped light coming from north-west moving towards east. It moved with a high speed. When it was at the Aspås farms, it changed moving direction towards south. It disappeared behing the church south in Hessdalen. No sound was heard. The shape was like a plane, only a little bit smaller. Bjarne say the total observation time was 4 minutes. The temperature was -13,2 °C.

Bjarne was at home when he saw a light coming from south-west moving towards north. The light moved beneath the edge of mount Finnsåhøgda, so that mount Finnsåhøgda could be seen behind the light. The color was blue-green and it moved with a jumping movement. When the light had reached Brattbekken it changed direction. It was then half way down the cliff. Suddenly did iy move upwards and disappear behind mount Finnsåhøgda. Total observastion time was 3 minutes. The temperature was +0,3 °C and the wind was gale from north-west.
Ref. Bjarne Lillevold.

Date: 12.11.2004 Time: A time between 3:20 and 3:35 PM Place: Highway 30, between Tolga and Os
Observer: Anonymous, who is living in the Røros town. His own words:
" Duration: Approx. 4 minutes.
Weather: Clear sky (close to) and afternoon sun. The temperature was 0 °C.
I was passenger in a car going north on highway 30 between the town Tynset and Røros. Less than one kilometer north of the brigde to Hummelvoll did I see what I first believed was a plane over the western top of mount Hummelfjell, Elvhøgda. That is closer to my location than mount Hummelfjell. It looked like the "plane" was standing still, which I thought was strange. Well, it is difficult to judge if it is completly still when you are sitting in a car in movement. If it was moving, the movement had to be very low. I kept looking at it. I will say it was approx. 500-600 m above the mountain top. One minute later, it seemed that it moved faster, but the speed was still slow. It moved in northwest direction towards the village Os. It lowered the altitude as well. The sun was still shining on it, but now from another direction. I saw now that the "plane" did not have either a tail or wings. It could therefor not have been a plane, but rather something that looked like it had only the body of a plane. The colour was white and it was reflecting the light from the sun, like a plane. I did not see any windows on the "object". I told the female driver about what I had seen for the last two minutes, and pointed towards it. She tried to look for it, but it was very slippy on the road, so she had to keep her yes on the road. She could therefor not see it. The object had now crossed the valley in a northwest direction, and could be see above the church in Os. It was a little bit further towards north than the church, more close to Galåen. Its high above the ground could now have been between 300 to 600 meter, and below the sunbeam. The object accelerated enormous and disappeared. Our car was now at the bridge crossing Vangrøfta, a river coming from Dalsbygda going out into the river Glomma. The clock was 3:37 P.M. At 3.38 P.M. did I call Røros airport to hear if they had observed a plane or something unusual the last 15 minutes. They said no, no plane or anything unusual the last 15 minutes. Most difficult was to judge the distance to the object. The first thing I did coming home was to study the map. I will say that the distance was approx 2500 m. It sounds as this is a long distance, but it was sunshine and the weather was clear, and the object could be seen very clearly. The size was like a DC9, and it was round in each ends. "

Suddenly the light turned towards east and disappeared with a very high speed. The light become weaker in intensity when it turned eastwards. Total observation time was approx. 30 seconds.

That is on the other side of the valley, in direction north-north-west. That is on the steepest part on mount Finnsåhøgda. It is just on the opposite side of the valley at the Aspås farms. It looked like a strong spotlight just above the trees down in the forest. When he was looking at it, it started moving towards him. The light become less bright then. It stopped, and moved back again. Then it become bright again. Bjarne went for getting his camera. WHen he had returned back, the light had gone. Bjarne saw the light for 3 to 4 minutes.
