Norwegian 'UFO' Excitement

Plenty of web discussion and linkage this morning about a curious sighting in the skies above Norway (heaps of images at that link). A strange spiral in the sky, complete with beam of light 'emanating' from its centre, led to explanations ranging from UFO to an energy vortex created by the Large Hadron Collider.

However, the official explanation is a little more prosaic - the spiral was likely created by the test-launch of a Baluva missile from a Russian submarine (not only has this been seen before, but there was an advisory issued regarding possible launches). Just to confuse the issue however, the Russians at this stage are denying that they have fired any missiles or rockets.

Whatever the explanation, it would have been seriously creepy to be a local when that 'black hole' developed at the end...

Update: Russia confirms failure of 3rd stage of a Baluva missile test launch.

I'm probably wrong, but personally I don't think this was caused by a Russian missile.

It's not the depth of the rabbit hole that bugs me...

I have read before of advanced technologies that are capable of creating large scale holograms. This kinda looked like one. Makes sense if you are trying to produce an onlooker outcome...eventually.

I think this event was staged for obamas arrival as the new messiah in norway when he accepted the nobel peace prize thursday.

Than again, I see project blue beam at work.

Look closer, closer, closer. See that mountain top, see the beam originating just over the top. Ya, its that simple.

Someone tell me if norway is ok with russian subs firing missiles off shore of mainland norway. The video shows an event effect never seen before, ever. Now the russians claim it was a rocket gone wild. Looking at the morning sky in the event picture, I concluded the shot of the sky effect was pointing from vaeret island 2 miles off the norway mainland. This would mean the russin sub was between the island and the Norwegian mainland. Something is rotten in denmark or norway, maybe even sweden. Russians firing missiles over norways airspace. Cause if I have the telementry almost correct, that missile should have either went up the coastline of norway, or entered norways mainland airspace as it came down.

In the pictures and videos I saw, it was really hard to judge the distance. And this was supposedly the 3rd stage of an ICBM that malfunctioned. Could have been pretty far away.

I have seen the same spiral effect on a really small scale with fireworks.
