Erica Lukes

Journey to Hessdalen: Looking Outside the U.S. for Answers about Unknown Phenomena

Talk Description

For decades the United States Government has chosen to suppress information about the existence of Unidentified Flying Objects. We have also learned that government officials infiltrated UFO organizations and the media in attempts to steer the narrative and discredit the subject, thereby muddying the waters for people with a genuine interest. Erica Lukes traveled to Norway’s Hessdalen Valley to visit Associate Professor Erling Strand and the Project Hessdalen team to learn how effective research can be performed on anomalous light phenomena.

Project Hessdalen began in 1981 when the valley experienced a flurry of reports from concerned residents. The residents were witness to strange balls of light that hovered over mountain tops, houses and other locations in the area. They also observed black, oval, rectangular, cigar and disc-shaped objects. In 1984, Erling Strand assembled a team of researchers to conduct a field study of the area and found the sightings to be so overwhelming that he approached Ostfold University College to obtain funding for a complete study.

For the past 35 years scientists from France, Germany and Italy have worked together to pioneer ways of detecting and recording anomalous lights now knows as “The Hessdalen Phenomena.” Learn how scientists from Europe have pushed research boundaries by examining these seemingly intelligent objects.


Erica Lukes, at artist and host of her radio show, “UFO CLASSIFIED,” has passion for the subject of Unidentified Flying Objects and the paranormal that dates back to her early childhood. After a series of personal paranormal experiences and UFO sightings, Erica felt compelled to research what was taking place not only in her home state of Utah, but all over the globe.

Erica Lukes is a UFO researcher and podcaster. She is the former state director for the Utah chapter of the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) and a MUFON field investigator. She is currently conducting private research on UFOs (Unidentified Flying Objects) and Parapsychology (the scientific study of paranormal and psychic phenomena).

She was the team-leader on a research program called “Project Orange.” This project was specifically dedicated to studying sightings and clusters of orange/red orbs (which are also known as fireballs). Erica served as an Associate Producer for the MUFON Communications Team, and was also a part MUFON Experiencer Research Team. Erica was honored at the 2014 and 2015 MUFON Symposium for her extensive work with MUFON Headquarters.
