Let me try to clarify what I'm saying lol
I'm not saying the spiral didn't span that far or wasn't that big, I'm just saying how it appears in the photos is not the same as how it would have appeared to people watching.
To people watching it would not have had as many rings at any one time and it would not have appeared to cover so much sky.
The photos also do not convey how long the spiral lasted.
In this thread theirs a person whom have witnessed the event. He claims 15minutes which is not what the report said. i heard 2-10minutes (reports) and this man said 15 minutes
The spiral lasted 1-2 minutes, the purple stuff could been seen drifting along the sky for about 15minutes. Looking like ordinary smoke, just purple.

Gotta hand it too those Ruskies, Failed or not, they have produced one of the coolest sky graphics ever. What a fantastic show that must have been, and I would pay dearly to have been in Norway to see that sucker fly over.
The Guicci's have seen the high bar in fireworks. I would like to see if they could top it, albeit on a much safer level. Fantastico!

I have no earthly clue what could produce such a phenomenon but I am going to watch this one very closely ... hopefully its the beginning of official contact

To Jim Oberg:
Do Russian missiles have self-destruct capability? I have seen reports that say they do. You said they do not have it.

The blue line emitting from the spiral is Cherenkov Radiation.

The sudden cutoff of 'white stuff' from the 'missile' (or whatever) strikes me as an argument that the original feed was under positive control, not an accident that might create a feed that would tail off at the end. The spiral-formation feed did NOT tail off, it just abruptly and totally STOPPED.
What that mean still is a mystery to me.
I am positive, that this sighting resulted from something fired from the ground. But I am also positive, that it is NOT a failed mission, but an experiment. Is is likely that the spiral and blue light are a result of some kind of electromagnetic field created by the experiment. Very curious event.
