Sadly, it turns out that the wormhole photos and videos I shared a couple of days ago were just the Russians after all. *sigh* The reason they were so slow to 'fess up was that the missile that failed so spectacularly was their newest, high-tech, sub-launched, intercontinental nuclear missile.

Maybe next time. But we'll always have the Norwegian Wormhole Spiral:

So it was just terrestrial, after all. Or so they say....

Don't worry. They will someday arrive to collect you.

The 'Norwegian' and 'Blue' should have been a bit of a clue . . .

I think we should all focus on the important part of it not being fake.

And then we should focus on the second most important part: how can we recreate this for recreational purposes??

True! We should buy more Russian rockets.

What is that all about? A record of having identified a rocket launch?

i think it's an early warning system, telling people in the area not to fly at that time. ? (plz notice i stared that sentence off with "i think.")

Yep, you got it. It's a cancellation notice for a previous "steer clear" announcement of pending airspace closure for a missile test launch (THE missile launch!) from the White Sea area. They give three date/time windows and four avoidance areas. The cancellation was issued during the second date/time slot, indicating either launch concluded or cancelled. The Mystery Spiral occurred in slot 2 right before the cancellation notice was issued.

It was really nice to think our Alien Overlords at least had a sense of style, you know?

One hopes that, when they finally do arrive, they create at least as cool a show. Like the one in your icon. That would be Dadaistically fantastic.
