Weird Lights Over Norway — What the Heck Is This?

One news site carries this breathless headline: Mysterious light appears over Norway before Obama Peace Prize speech.”

I don’t know about all that, but I do know that this is a very odd light in the sky. As a born-&-raised native of Southern California, I have seen with my own eyes several of those spectacular missile launches from Vandenberg AFB and the amazing lightshows they can give off in the night sky. But this doesn’t look anything like those. I’m not sure what to make of this. What do you think?

A mysterious light display appearing over Norway last night has left thousands of residents in the north of the country baffled.

Witnesses from TrĂžndelag to Finnmark compared the amazing sight to anything from a Russian rocket to a meteor or a shock wave – although no one appears to have mentioned UFOs yet.

The phenomenon began when what appeared to be a blue light seemed to soar up from behind a mountain. It stopped mid-air, then began to circulate. . . . (read more)

    It's too stable in it's point in the sky to be a rocket.

    Whether or not it is supernatural, let us pray for the people who saw it. Some of them might be worried sick.

    Honestly my first thought is some millionaire got a large spotlight and pointed it at the sky to freak out his neighbors. I understand it's a bit too high for that, but it seems a logical assumption that it's human in origin (given it's order and originating from the ground).

    I made the same correlation about the 'peace prize' and this celestial event.A sign? A comment, made on on the feast of the Immaculate Conception, on the obvious hipocrisy?

  5. Patm

    I too think it is too stable to be a rocket. This happened on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception. I wonder what it's all about.

    An aborigine from Australia threw a boomerang that got out of hand? Or some teenager playing with a strobe light? Or Obama hitching a ride with an Angel and they got into an argument about which way to go? A UFO whose pilot got into the rubharb wine?

    It's Rudolph, of course.

    It's certainly no black hole as some implied. It would not have disappeared like that (it would take millions of years for it to evaporate if it's even the size of a tangerine). Also many other effects would have been feltUFO? I doubt it. For one reason: they can fly from their star system to hours and have worse stealth technology then we do? Or are aliens only about doing coreography on the sky?Or maybe they are protesting Obama's Nobel Prize? 😛

    This may help:UPDATE (2 a.m. EST, Dec. 10): Circumstantial evidence is mounting that the phenomenon was caused by a malfunctioning suborbital rocket, possibly a Bulava ICBM launched from a Russian submarine in the White Sea. A Navtex no-fly alert was issued for the White Sea on Dec. 9th, and photographers have recorded what appears to be the initial boost phase of a launch beneath the spiral (see inset). A rocket motor spinning out of control could indeed explain the spiral pattern, as shown in this video of a Trident II missile launched from a US submarine in 2007. The Russian rocket hypothesis is plausible, but it has not yet been confirmed. from Spaceweather

    Oh ye who have eyes to see and cannot see. Clearly it is the miraculous 'star' come to rest in the December night above Scandinavia where the Lord of the World ascends the stage to accept his Nobel Peace Prize.

    CONFIRMED: The Russian Defense Ministry has confirmed the launch and subsequent failure of a submarine-based missile: BBC Report.

    Not confirmed.I saw it and that was no missile.That thing whatever it was went on for 10 mins +.Sorry but the media can go suck it as far as the missile or rocket theory goes.According to the 'media' the Roswell incident was a weather balloon.Yeah right.

    It was a sign from God to the Scandinavians to get their act together or else. Like no lesbian Bishops for one!.

    I'll call it a sky painting waiting for interpretations, a missile, if so, I'd like to see other examples…

    I'll call it a sky painting waiting for interpretations, if it's a missile, I'd like to see other previous examples…
