Norway December 2009 saw a massive story break around the world ‘What are the Anomalous Spiral Lights in the Skies above Norway?” The question was echoed around the world by every news and cable channel, the story very quickly went viral. You may have assumed the phenomenon was a once off, especially if you watch cable news but the truth is they continue to occur to this day.
The Norway Anomalous Spiral incident was after a few months explained as a failed rocket test carried out by Russia, and the story went quiet. This explanation however didn’t sit well with many people and raised more questions than answers. How is it possible for a rocket to spin in place and burn up for nearly 10 minutes, more time than it has fuel for? Then there is also the fact that rockets are sent a self destruct mechanism to stop out of control rockets slamming back to Earth and potentially causing massive damage (see the video of the Titan 4 Explosion at Cape Canaveral).
