A strange aerial phenomenon appeared over Norway Tuesday night, and has the whole country wondering what caused it.
Presented as a swirling spiral with an accompanying glow, the strange spectacle was recorded on film by people throughout the country. The current speculation is that it was caused by a missile launch, though no one is claiming responsibility.
"We are used to seeing lots of auroras here in Arctic Norway, but on my way to work this morning I saw something completely unexpected," said witness Nick Banbury. "...A green beam of light similar in colour to the aurora with a mysterious rotating spiral at one end."
