I can diss-spell one line of thinking here and that is that this is a missile or a rocket. I work in the ballistics industry, make rockets and missiles, well i dont make them i sell them but that is not caused by any rocket or missile.
To me this looks like a quantum mechanical event, seriously, look at how uniformed the circling patterns are. Whatever it is its disrupting ALL the matter around it.
Well Hack, it would appear your imagination is inversly proportional to the ammout of knowledge you have about the rockets you sell!!!
If you were even slightly involved in the technical side of modern Turbine or Rocket engine work, you would surely understand that a malfunction in either the FCC, FCS (including wiring) or a failure in the gimble actuators or a mechanical failure which would cause the gimbled engine to lock in a position... COULD & probably WOULD cause a rocket to spiral continuously and uniformly until it ran out of fuel or destroyed it's self.
Personally, I'm gonna stake my reputation on it that this is a malfunctioning rocket, spinning into the sky ejecting exhaust gasses and fuel combined with a very still night which therefore did not distort the spiral shape.... The black hole observed would be caused by the rocked suddenly running out of fuel....
e.g. If you were to hold a hose pipe and spin round fast, from above it would look like a spiral of water.... then if you were to put your finger over the end and completely & suddenly stop the flow of water.... the last bit of water that left the hose just before you put your finger over the end would still have the same velocity as the rest of the water and would continue on it original path (Newtons law) If you were spinning fast enough to create a similar effect as the picture over Norway, when you put your finger over the hose, it would appear that a "hole" with no water would grow from the centre. (and for those of you shouting what reputation.... well I'm hoping to gain one from my hypothesis!)

Here are quotes from this page
Anna Rathsman by Swedish Space Coorparation in Kiruna denied that there can be a rocket from their center. VG Nett has also been in contact with Andøya Rocket Range who said that there have been no launches on Wednesday morning.
VG Nett has on Wednesday morning talked to meteorologists, astronomers, professionals in Sweden, the Armed Forces in Norway and the Russian embassy. . No one knows knows what light is due.
(AP) The Norwegian Space Center believes the mysterious giant spiral is a Russian rocket that is launched from a U-boat in the White Sea. The Russian Northern Fleet denies that such a thing should have happened.
So officially they are stumped
NOT A ROCKET

Dont come back at me with "that is up" that is not an upward angle, given the distance and the tail you can see that would have to have been a tree burner of a missile and they dont fire missiles/rockets like that.

Just wanted to add,that if this is an apparent rocket spinning out of control,then why does the spiral effect look so controlled?
I mean,that spiral looks to be absolutely perfect!
Is there a method to perhaps measure the accuracy of the spiral?
...the Bulava could be accepted into service no earlier than 2010, provided at least two successful test launches from the board of its future media - missile submarine strategic Yuri Dolgoruky.
ccording to experts Infox.ru, Norwegians have seen Russia's missile "Bulava"
