    Exclamation Spiral Lights Over Norway Baffle Meteorologists, This is creepy.

    It looks like a hoax but it appears to be real.

    http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage...in-a-spin.html



    A MYSTERIOUS giant spiral of light that dominated the sky over Norway this morning has stunned experts — who believe the space spectacle is an entirely new astral phenomenon.

    SERIOUSLY WEIRD. The best explanation is some kind of Russian rocket? Please.

    Another article: http://news.discovery.com/space/myst...er-norway.html

    "According to the press, this could be seen all over northern Norway and must therefore have been very high up in the atmosphere to be seen hundreds of km apart."

    The near-perfect spiral appeared at 7:50 a.m. and already the conspiracy theories are out in full-force. Is it some kind of energy weapon? Or was it the Large Hadron Collider (which, coincidentally, has just broken the world record for the most powerful particle collision of all time)?

    One thing's for sure, when I spent five months living in the Arctic Circle (on the Norwegian archipelago of Svalbard), I never saw anything quite like this in the sky -- no matter how much řl I'd consumed.

    Here's the logical:

    Spaceweather says it may have been a Russian rocket... so the biggest worry should be: what the hell are the Russians up to...

    Evidently, the Russians have admitted it was one of their Bulava missles, fired from a submarine in the White Sea, which failed and---evidently---caused the phenomenon in Norway's skies:

    When did Bulova start making missles?

    The music they added to the video made it all the creepier. Better lights than in my neighborhood this time of year. LOL I thought it was beautiful, actually!
