It reallly is captivating this pic

While it is true that some experiments with the ionosphere involve intentionally releasing material they experiments are publicized.
There are some claims that this was a failed test. A failure does not have to mean a catastrophic failure. There are other examples of spiraling booster stages.
The "beam" is an exhaust trail and it is visible in photographs after the spiral has dissipated. There is no indication that EISCAT is capable of producing an effect anything like this. The ionospheric heater can affect only a small area directly above it. According to the logs at EISCAT the heater was not in operation.
A missile (failed or otherwise) is the most likely cause.

Hopi Spiral Symbol: This rendition of the Hopi spiral is also common among North, South and Central Native American Indian tribes. The spiral represents the number of journeys or treks a tribe or nation has made to the four corners of the earth. Engraved on stones, the spiral suggests an intricate journey made to the Otherworlds on back. Generally, the spiral represents a broadening of consciousness, which is the destination arrived after a long journey.

Interesting and exciting topic. Ive looked at the photographs and know that I could photograph the spiral without relying on a long exposure. That too me negates any thoughts that the photographer had pre-knowledge of the event happening. I surmise that a camera was grabbed and the shot taken, there was plenty of time to find a camera.

I'm wondering if this image has a long exposure?
Will help explain the symmetry etc.

Either way. I have to debunk the ice crystal theory though... atleast within our field of gravity. It may well be this is a rocket, but if the ice crystal theory is to work, then it would have to be in space.
