Norway Spiral UFO 2

Saw this on DebGeisler's LJ and was amazed. If I ever saw anything like this in the sky I would not think to grab a video camera. I would just freak out and possibly stop/drop/roll or hide under a table.

"Anyone for some Arctic roll? Mystery as spiral blue light display hovers above Norway By MAIL FOREIGN SERVICE
What's blue and white, squiggly and suddenly appears in the sky?
If you know the answer, pop it on a postcard and send it to the people of Norway, where this mysterious light display baffled residents yesterday.
Speculation was increasing today that the display was the result of an embarrassing failed test launch of a jinxed new Russian missile.

I want this to be real freaking aliens, out to scare the crap out of us with a big prank. Because while it's awesome that a sub-launched missile might malfunction in that way, I want it to be practical joker aliens.

and I'd probably be too busy wetting myself to grab a video camera.

WOW.

I think it *is* real freaking aliens, and the Russian missile story is a cover to keep the world calm and stable. It looks like it tore a hole in the sky at the end. How did it DO that?!?!

Yeah... it seems REALLY fishy to me. But then again... my dad does rocket test missions up there all the time... but usually it's in extremely non-populated areas.

This is just weird. I think there's more to the whole 'wayward rocket' (or 'weather balloon/swamp gas') explanation that has been given. SOMETHING else is going on here....

Actually, the "hole in the sky" isn't that hard to explain. What caused the spiral is the exhaust from a spinning rocket that had flown high enough to be lit by the sun (This event happened about half an hour before dawn in Norway). The rocket was tumbling very quickly, so the exhaust had a lot of momentum moving away from the flight path of the rocket. When the rocket ran out of fuel, the exhaust trail was no longer being generated, but the contrail that already was there continued to move away from the path of the rocket. SpaceWeather.com had an article about it the day it happened, with lots of still photos of it that look even more “Practical Joke Aliens” than the videos. Follow the links at the bottom of the article for more pics.
