The Norway Spiral

On December 9, 2009, a curious spiral of blue and white light appeared in the night sky over northern Norway and Sweden, freaking out a section of the public and generating an intense debate among astronomers and scientists as well as conspiracy theorists.

Everything from anomalous Northern lights, to aliens and a trans-dimensional wormhole was suggested. The light was seen from all across northern Norway as well as from northern Sweden, and was reported to have lasted for 10 minutes.

We see things like this every few years here in Southern California. The lights and halo are the product of rocket/missile launches from one of our local bases. The halo is made up of ice crystals from spent fuel lit up by the light reflected from the atmosphere. Sorry, no UFOs.
