The Norwegian Spiral Anomaly


Salam & hye there.

Just want to take some time off from weddings for a while.

I stumbled upon this interesting article that i just read. It’s called the Norwegian Spiral Anomaly. It’s quite an interesting article which grasp my attention. I immediately began googling it over the net. This is a brief description from Wikipedia :

The Norwegian spiral anomaly of 2009  appeared in the night sky over Norway  on 9 December 2009. It was visible from, and photographed from, northern Norway and Sweden. The spiral consisted of a blue beam of light with a greyish spiral emanating from one end of it. The light could be seen in all of Trøndelag to the south (the two red counties on the map to the right) and all across the three northern counties which compose Northern Norway, as well as from Northern Swedenand it lasted for 2–3 minutes.According to sources, it looked like a blue light coming from behind a mountain, stopping in mid-air, and starting to spiral outwards.A similar, though less spectacular event had also occurred in Norway the month before.Both events had the expected visual features of failed flights of Russian RSM-56 Bulava missiles,and the Russian Defence Ministry acknowledged shortly after that such an event had taken place on December 9.

These are some speculations :

Hundreds of calls flooded the Norwegian Meteorological Institute as residents wanted to know what they were seeing.Norwegian celebrity astronomer Knut Jørgen Røed Ødegaard commented that he first speculated that it was a fireball meteor, but rejected that possibility because the light lasted too long.He also pointed out the area over which the light had been observed was exceptionally large, covering all of Northern Norway and Trøndelag. It was also suggested that it could have been a rare, never-before-seen Northern Lights variant.

UFO enthusiasts immediately began speculating whether the aerial light display could be evidence of extraterrestrial intelligence proposing among other things that it could be a wormhole opening up, or somehow was linked to the recent high-energy experiments undertaken at the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland.

Officials has declared that those spirals were caused by Missiles. The paragraph is what officials has to say :

On December 10, the Russian Ministry of Defence confirmed that a Bulava missile test had failed. According to a spokesman, “The missile’s first two stages worked as normal, but there was a technical malfunction at the next, third, stage of the trajectory.” Russian defence analyst Pavel Felgenhauer stated to AFP that “such lights and clouds appear from time to time when a missile fails in the upper layers of the atmosphere and have been reported before … At least this failed test made some nice fireworks for the Norwegians.”Previous to the Russian statement, Jonathan McDowell, an astrophysicist at the Harvard–Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, had already suggested that the unusual light display occurred when the missile’s third stage nozzle was damaged, causing the exhaust to come out sideways and sending the missile into a spin.

 Some has expressed their feelings over the matter. Some even thought that those were extra terrestials trying to open up a wormhole or a ‘ door ‘ to another dimension ! Anything’s possible. While the officials are pressing on the matter that the anomaly is caused by their ‘ failed missiles ‘, many have their doubts on the explanations by the officials. They even speculated that the officials are experimenting on opening up a ‘ window ‘ to another dimension.

Well, those are some of the explanations that i read over the internet. Many have their speculations. But one thing in mind : if they were missiles, would failed missiles be spinning in such perfect spirals as per the video?

What do you think?

Salam & see ya!
