Amazing Sky Spiral Generated by Out-of-Control Missile

Pictures of it look like something out of a sci-fi comic book—enormous white ripples with a lasery blue beam shooting out of the center. However, the Daily Mail in the United Kingdom among other media outlets, is reporting that the strange spiral seen over the sky in Norway a few nights back was not the UFO some Scandinavians hoped for (or feared), but rather the smoky entrails of a malfunctioning Russian missile. The Daily Mail writes:

The Bulava missile was test-fired from the Dmitry Donskoi submarine in the White Sea early on Wednesday but failed at the third stage, say newspapers in Moscow today. ...

The mystery began when a blue light seemed to soar up from behind a mountain in the north of the country. It stopped mid-air, then began to move in circles. Within seconds a giant spiral had covered the entire sky.
