On the basis of statistical calculations on "galactic migration" [1]
which bring the necessity of insertion of a new parameter inside the
Drake formula, the work-hypothesis named SETV (Search for
Extraterrestrial Visitation) predicts that exogenous vehicles and/ or Von
Neumann self-replicating probes may have reached the Solar System,
including Earth. The SETV strategy is devoted to the monitoring of the
entire solar system inside a sphere with a radius of 50 astronomical
units with Earth in its center [4]: such a task is fully guaranteed with
the present technology both by using specific scientific payloads on
space missions and by using sophisticated multiwavelength detectors here
on Earth. 

The possible presence of probes of extraterrestrial origin on
our own planet may be ascertained by using a network of sensing stations 
which are placed in critical areas were anomalous atmospheric phenomena
appear recurrently. So far, over 30 of such places have been identified
all over the world. One of them is the norwegian area of Hessdalen. The
huge amount of data which were acquired in 18 years by the norwegian
university-team known as "Project Hessdalen", has justified the execution
of two italian scientific explorative missions (EMBLA 2000 and 2001).
The main goal of the expeditions consisted in testing experimentally the
highest number as possible of the well-grounded physical theories of
natural kind which are known so far -such as: tectonic piezoelectricity
and triboluminescence, solar and ionospheric activity, magnetic
monopoles, ball lightnings, mini-black holes [2] -which are able to 
explain some aspects of the phenomenon, but the "SETV hypothesis" has
been taken into account as well. The results of mission EMBLA 2000 were
presented last year [5]. 

The results of mission EMBLA 2001 [6] will be presented at this new
"Hessdalen Workshop", where it will be shown that the considered
light-phenomenon presents sometimes prominent physical anomalies and a
high degree of self-sustentation from the energetic point of view. All
this appears from the following surveys: 

a) the luminous phenomenon is able to last up to two hours by emitting up
to 1 MW of power, 

b) the luminous phenomenon itself is openly constituted of many
subordinate spheroids which seem to vibrate around a common barycenter,
some of which are clearly ejected from the central body; 

c) the luminous phenomenon is able to change shape and color in a very 
short time, by showing semi-regular pulsations continuously and for a
long time lapse, 

d) from a physical point of view, it has been possible to demonstrate
both spectroscopically and photometrically that the photosphere of the
luminous phenomenon behaves like a thermal plasma with a temperature 
around 6500 °K, with a Planck-type spectrum and a consistent overlap of
emission lines of nebular type; 

e) it has been ascertained that the photometric variability is due to
luminosity increases only because of the increase of the radiating surface
and not because of any changes of the temperature, which remains 
approximately constant without any observed cooling effect. All this has
suggested that the isothermal plasma may be confined inside a very strong
magnetic field (magnetic perturbations have been measured in 1984 [3])
and that the approximately globular shape of the plasmoids is due to a
sort of "central force" which simulates gravity and which gives the
plasmoids the shape of a "mini-star"; 

f) a small percent of the recorded phenomena behaves like low-luminosity
targets characterized by a very low level of optical transparency. There
is no doubt from the recorded data, that the phenomenon shows
characteristics of self-regulation from an energetic point of view, and
so far it is not possible to identify a mechanism of natural origin 
which is able to act spontaneously with such a surprising efficiency.
