Weird Norwegian Skies

Last night a strange spiral lit up the sky over Norway, from Trøndelag to Finnmark, and many people took pictures.
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.

Within seconds a giant spiral had covered the entire sky. Then a green-blue beam of light shot out from its centre - lasting for ten to twelve minutes before disappearing completely.

Russia denied any missile tests in the area. Link to story. Link to photo gallery. -via Metafilter

My immediate thought was "why would Russia immediately deny it? It has to be them!"
If not a hoax, photoshop, conspiracy, or further proof of global warming. Did I cover them all? Oh, and North Korea.
Abusive comment hidden. (Show it anyway.)
