Excellent detective work!
Is it possible to link to the GE silhouette images so we could verify the triangulation by ourselves? Not doubting you, just so it would be official and 100% verifiable.
So, would it be not inconceivable for Russia to try to divert global attention away from any new technology testing by claiming multiple and successive failures in something as elementary as the solid fueled propulsion system ? Would public amusement and ridicule be worth the price to pay for the ability to covertly test radical new technology with almost minimal scrutiny ?

Excellent post... until the very end!
This is a perfect summary of the facts:
"In conclusion, it is agreed that the event was to a high degree of probability, triggered by the launch of a Russian missile.
It is agreed that to a high degree of probability, that EISCAT and similar HAARP type technology was not employed and was not responsible for the spiral event."
I have NO idea why you had to tag a conspiracy theory onto the end of it?

I am not 100% how you backtracked the original launch sites though.
All of these locations fall EXACTLY on a "great circle" path ... a "great circle" is the shortest location between 2 points on a sphere.
"A great circle of a sphere is a circle that runs along the surface of that sphere so as to cut it into two equal halves, as distinct from a small circle."

Firstly great research and detail in the OP - brilliant actually.
Please forgive me in advance for what are probably stupid questions and a misguided observation.
What "emissions" caused the blue corkscrew track and the subsequent whitish spiral ?
Were they deliberate or as a result of a failure ?
I can accept this was a rocket test and the conclusion that it wasn't necessarily a failure but what caused the visible phenomena - is the blue trail supposed to be exhaust and the white spiral fuel ?
Have other missiles of the same type left the same colour trail or is this some new propulsion system that reacted with the atmosphere in some EM fashion to provide an aurora type effect ?
If it was indeed an anti-missile test as suggested by another poster what are we seeing in the spiral as it doesn't look as if it is a "physical" shield ?
The observation is that the pictures from Skjervoy and Tromso, when compared with the view from space, seem to show that the "spiral event" was much closer to Skjervoy than the analysis indicates.
This could be a function of perspective, picture cropping or camera zoom but to my untrained eye isn't the difference in "size" of the event in the pictures from the two places too pronounced if it took place at the indicated lcoation ?
