Nestled 300 km north of Oslo lies the quaint valley of Hessdalen, home to unique sightings that have puzzled residents and scientists alike. Regular phenomena light up the skies – but are these mysterious lights a portal for communicating with inhabited worlds beyond Earth? For over 30 years, research teams have studied the phenomena yet the secrets of Hessdalen persist.

This book explores deeper questions sparked by the valley’s unexplained occurrences. Is Earth an ordinary cosmic body among millions, or somehow unique? We know life emerged nearly four billion years ago but still do not fully grasp the physical and chemical processes enabling this. With expanding resources to study space, might we someday soon detect signatures of extraterrestrial life, whether in our solar system or on distant exoplanets?

The final part invites philosophical reflection on the acute fragility of our biosphere and humanity’s place in the vast Universe. As an astrophysicist at the University of Picardie Jules Verne in France, the author weaves empirical science and speculative inquiry to probe Hessdalen’s confounding lights, the exceptional nature of Earth, and the environmental precariousness of this rare life-sustaining planet.


Gianni Pascoli is an associate professor of physics at the University of Picardie Jules Verne in France. His research implications are mainly concentrated on quantum chemistry, plasma physics and astrophysics. A large part of his work was devoted to the study of interstellar carbonaceous molecules. He has also developed theoretical magnetohydrodynamic models to better understand the morphology of planetary nebulae. Recently, his interest went towards the UFO phenomena, a domain neglected by the scientific community.

He is the author of one hundred research articles and has published eight books on physics and astrophysics.
