It's difficult to draw any definitive conclusions with respect to 
that simply involve a light or lights seen on one occasion in a 
place, but never repeated. I've tended to ignore this type of report
and concentrate on ) those cases where lights have been seen repeatedly
over a lengthy period of time in one specific area, i.e. Longdendale,
Hessdalen, or b) lights have been seen repeatedly in one place for a
specific period of time, i.e. Burton Dassett hills. Unfortunately, there
hasn't been anything noteworthy in the last ten years in the UK which
has fallen into categories a) or b), and even if something did occur
we have the usual problem of lack of resources etc to allow an
investigation of the type undertaken in Norway.
