Check out this still-unexplained phenomenon over Norway:

Click the image to see the UK news story.

This amazing light-show started as the spiraling green beam, then grew to fill the sky with the giant spiral. Whoah! First assumption was a Russian rocket test, but the Russians deny that they launched at that time. What's it look like to you? Another photo:

There are plenty of sources, so it's verified, not a Photoshop job. Heck, there's even a video of the spiral forming.

Welcome, Alien Overlords!

Thanks for the heads-up, normalcyispasse!

I know! I wish we lived nearer the Russians (or, y'know, in the vicinity of the alien landing) so we could see it, too.

Offhand, I'd say don't believe the Russians. Because it sure looks like a spiral-out from a bad missile shot, and because you just can't trust the Russians, ever.

Oh, I suspect you're right, but I want to believe.

And it's still cool, whatever it is ;-)

The stories also differ about how it started. Apparently there was a blue-green "streak" shooting UP first, then the spiral formed, THEN the blue spiral coming back down. Which suggests one of two things, a rocket gone bad ... or a bolide. A mixed-composition bolide coming in near-direct would also match with the "flight pattern." It would appear to shoot UP as it cleared the horizon, appear stationary but expanding as it spun and approached, then fall off to the side as it lost velocity in thicker atmosphere on close approach.

Of course, the Wormhole Aperture Theory is fun too!

I vote Wormhole Aperture Theory, because ...
it sounds cooler.

Oh, come on, Chris. Get real. There's no way that's aliens.

It's clearly a wormhole, and we're all going to get sucked through to the Dark Dimension.

DAMMIT! And I trusted him.

Wait, we all know that he repents before all is lost, right...?

It's either The Second Coming of Christ or a Russian missile. Toss-up.

That would be awesome if Christ II were to arrive via spacecraft that travels the wormholes across dimensions!

Interesting that this shows up around the same time as the Hadron collider gets its first high energy proton collisons....

Best of all is Google translate:

My word for the day, along with:
You must be fucking skylig in IQ!

Two mentions for Tesla! and numerous HAARP, which came to my mind, but the rocket theory seems to hold the most water right nowl.

I'm still casting my vote for benevolent aliens. Or, y'know, intergalactic Jesus.

I'd like that too.
I'd really really like it IF he ever comes back around that he tell them "you stupid English-speakers, it's pronouned HEH-sus."

I can't believe it's not the top story on all the news outlets!

Mainstream news is BORING.

The video needs cleaned up and made into a screen saver.

Well, it's obviously the entrance to a wormhole as others are saying.

And I, for one, welcome the screwing we're going to get from our new alien overlords.

At least life will become interesting! And how silly will people feel about all the things we fight about once we become fertilizer for their skyscraping fields of ickthnor?

We'll find out soon enough. Watch the wacky-news at the checkout stands: They are In The Know.

Whatever it was, it's setting up camp in a frozen wasteland. Won't they be surprised when the current balmy temperatures (WTF? It's 30 degrees warmer at the northern tip of Norway than it is in Lawrence, KS? No fair!) drop to sub-zero and the sun disappears.

Our little Martian friend needs to turn up the power a bit. All he did was warm up the temps to survivable numbers in the region.

I fear SNAG. His power is to make us all hug while wearing hypno-wheel necklaces made out of hemp and encrusted with Stones of Power.

Sadly, the Russians have since confessed, taking all the fun out of it.
