Mystery as Spiral Blue Light Display Hovers Above Norway [Updated]

The mystery began when a blue light seemed to soar up from behind a mountain in the north of the country. It stopped mid-air, then began to move in circles. Within seconds a giant spiral had covered the entire sky. Then a green-blue beam of light shot out from its centre - lasting for ten to 12 minutes before disappearing completely.

Onlookers describing it as 'like a big fireball that went around, with a great light around it' and 'a shooting star that spun around and around'.

The Norwegian Meteorological Institute was flooded with telephone calls after the light storm.

Check out the pictures at the link. A truly weird phenomena.

Update: Apparently what was witnessed was a Russian rocket spinning out of control.
