Spiral lights over Norway

UFO enthusiasts, military analysts, and scientists around the world are looking for answers to bizarre early morning lights that were visible across the sky in Norway on Wednesday.

Visible for almost two minutes, the spiraling tail trailed a ball of moon-like light that captivated awestruck Norweigan at around 8:45 p.m. local time Wednesday. Although some would like to believe it was paranormal activity or an alien spaceship, the most likely answer to the cause of the mysterious light seems to be a Russian missile test gone wrong.
