Initial data

Initial information from sources or from an eyewitness
Incident date: 

A man noticed hundreds of tiny "dancing balls" while looking at the Northern Lights, and believes he may have seen a fleet of UFOs.

After posting a video of the sky in southern Norway, the man was confused by the appearance of hundreds of shape-shifting lights and believes that the lights may be either from a distant festival or creatures from outer space.

His post on Reddit garnered hundreds of "yes" votes and comments concerned that we were being invaded by creatures from beyond the stars.

Original news


Saw this tonight in the south of Norway. At first I thought it was light beams from a festival but I live in a tiny city and that cloud is either over mountains a lake or just a residential area. Really confused to what this could be. Any ideas?


A bloke spotted hundreds of tiny "dancing orbs" when looking out at the Northern Lights and believes he may have seen a fleet of UFOs.

Posting a video of the skies in south Norway, the man was left flummoxed by the appearance of hundreds of shapeshifting lights and believes the lights could either be from a far off festival or beings from outer space.

His post to Reddit garnered hundreds of upvotes and commenters concerned we were being invaded by beings from beyond the stars.

Regardless of what the lights represented, viewers were left stunned by one of "the coolest videos" they had ever seen. One user wrote the video was "super neat" and another said it was "beautiful".

Others questioned whether user CrayRazy had captured evidence of life from other planets. He wrote: "Saw this tonight in the south of Norway. At first I thought it was light beams from a festival but I live in a tiny city and that cloud is either over mountains, a lake or just a residential area.

"Really confused to what this could be. Any ideas?" Other users were left wondering if the lights in the sky were the recent sightings of aurora borealis, but one pointed out: "Aurora borealis is way higher up."

Another wrote: "UFOs are popping up for this storm. I saw one here". A third added: "I don't know, looks like a lot of shiny orbs. There seems to be a lot of UFO activity around this solar event!"

Other Reddit users were left less convinced by the appearance of aliens and wondered whether it was in fact a solar storm taking place in the area.

One said: "We are having a solar storm. The whole northern hemisphere is capable of seeing the aurora borealis." The original poster replied: "That's why I went outside but that doesn't look like the northern lights at all."


List of versions containing features matching the eyewitness descriptions or material evidence

The storm

The storm is an atmospheric phenomenon in which the inside of clouds or between the cloud and the earth's surface arise electrical discharges - lightning accompanied by thunder. It is quite a common natural phenomenon in certain situations could be considered something abnormal, such as when it appears under unusual conditions or unfamiliar to the eyewitness. A vivid example is the so-called "snow storm" (or "snow storm"), i.e. thunderstorm, which is when rain falls heavy snow, freezing rain or ice pellets.

Light sources on clouds

Lasers, searchlights, car headlights and other light sources of sufficient power can form a column of light in a dusty or foggy atmosphere, various patterns on low clouds, fog or haze. Also, the rays can highlight parts of the cloud, objects or birds, giving them bizarre shapes.

Searchlights can shine with one beam, several. They can be stationary, move, and also form spinning carousels on the clouds, which can change shape and color.

It often seems that the light source is located at the point where the beam hits the cloud, and not vice versa.

It looks like rays on low clouds. Maybe some kind of festival is taking place in this place? It is necessary to find out the exact place of observation.
