Observers: Kim Bjarnaberg, Aylen Bjarnaberg and Lene Schou
The observers had a weekend tour to Hessdalen, from Friday 19 to Sunday 21 July. They were located at a high between lake Hessjøen and lake Øyungen between 01:00 and 01:30 am, the night between Saturday and Sunday. They saw a strong, white, green and red light. Aylen become aware of it, just above the tree tops. The duration was only 5 to 6 seconds. They grab the mobile and start filming. It was too late for the strong light, but they got a weaker blue light on the film.

They did also see a light, at the same time, when they were at the parking spot, close to the toll place for the Hessjøen road, This light was seen towards lake Hesssjøen. This light was seen a very short time, so no mobile was used for filming.
Here are some clips from the film, between Saturday and Sunday. They were locate at the arrow on the map, and the light was somewhere inside the red circle:
