    Did we ever get a good scientific explanation for what made the blue spiral over Norway?

    I haven't really kept up with this, and wondered if someone here could shed some light!

    Best Wishes! Pecos Bill out.

    All right, Beatrice, there was no alien. The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

    There were several threads when it happened. This test just happened to be when Obama and the other world leaders were in Copenhagen. And people got pics and videos of the lights visible from Copenhagen. The Russian SLBM being tested spirals in flight and the test was far enough North to have interaction with the cosmic rays that cause the Aurora.
