Mystery light over Norway
From the UK’s Daily Mail, a really interesting story today about a fantastic show of light in the sky – likely connected with a malfunctioning rocket lifting off from Russia. See the entire story, with photos and video, here.
Here are the first few paragraphs from the story:
A mysterious light display appearing over Norway last night has left thousands of residents in the north of the country baffled.
Witnesses from Trøndelag to Finnmark compared the amazing sight to anything from a Russian rocket to a meteor or a shock wave – although no one appears to have mentioned UFOs yet.
The phenomenon began when what appeared to be a blue light seemed to soar up from behind a mountain. It stopped mid-air, then began to circulate.
Photos after the jump.
