Using trigonometry, one can find the angles of objects, distances to them, and even how tall they are, as long as you find different sides. This is used in weather at times to tell how tall a thunderstorm top is. This is why this story fits directly into the weather.
The Norway Spiral event has been claimed by the Russian Military. The rocket was claimed to launch from the White Sea, heading northward. Armed with this data, a conclusion using the Google Earth software demonstrated the direction the photograph was taken from was the White Sea, and the trajectory was a ballistic missile track to the north.
So while it may look like something meteorological, or astronomical, the spiral was solved by using simple mathematics. The rocket, in this method, is calculated to be about 97 to 106 miles high when the photo was taken, which is the exact altitude range for missiles in their third stages.

Additionally, a researcher at the Tromsø Geophysical Observatory (where they observe auroras) Truls Lynne Hansen is certain that the light was caused by a missile launch. "The missile has probably come out of control and exploded," Hansen was quoted in the Barents Observer. "The peculiar spiral shaped light pattern comes from reflection of the sun in the leaking fuel."
Visible in the images and videos is the sunlight just beginning to peek over the horizon which would have back-lit the fuel.
Another launch on November 1 also caused strange light phenomenon in northern parts of Norway, although not as spectacular as the one today. It also caused speculation as to the cause, but it came from the launch of a Sineva missile from the nuclear submarine in the White Sea.
Doug Ellison from UnmannedSpaceflight.com has created a video (updated and improved from his earlier version we had in our previous article) showing the morphology of a tumbling rocket stage throwing out unspent fuel in two directions. "This is a set of rendered views using 3DS Max to produce a coarse simulation of what may have occurred to produce the beautiful formation in the sky over Norway earlier today," he said.
The explanation is logical. The events preceding the spiral indacate a failed missle attempt. The effect has been seen before. WHy is everyone so anxious to come up with an over the top explanation? Rather than accept the explanation that fits? I thought we analyzed conspiracies no manufacture them out of thin air? Gotta get over this. It wasn't Haarp. It wasn't a wormhole, Matreiya, aliens or anything else.
At one point I, half in jest, suggested that the spiral was indeed evidence of electronic counter measures.

I understand your point of view EM, however if even one person finds enlightenment in the data presented by the OP then the thread has served its purpose. We are here trying to deny ignorance and to that end the ressurection of zombie subjects is required to see things in light of new data or to appreciate a new point of view.
I would hazard to say that if ATS didn't beat dead horses there would not be much to read!

i don't mind repeats cause i don't read them all. in fact, i didn't read the first one that spawned this one. so this was all very fun to read.

I still to this day believe this was no missile test. IT WAS A MISSILE LAUNCHED. At something, Something that has advanced tech that realizes to dodge a rocket bound by modern day physics is to literally out spiral the rocket until the rocket looses its velocity.
Eyewitness accounts show UFO's preforming high velocity turns and stops and exhibiting other zero G like actions.
I pose this question to you all. How would a Zero G craft evade a modern day missile.
You all are focused on the wrong thing, missile tests, failed missile tests. i say BS.... i say, ?????WHAT WHERE THEY LAUNCHING AT????
Free you're minds and open them up to the other possibilities of this situation.

And, I definitely would not call my father's efforts at engineering with NWSC anything to scoff at, nor my friend's endeavors with game theory, electrical, and industrial engineering weak by any stretch of the imagination.
I have not insulted you, therefore, it shows a weak character to try to insult me or others who have spent years upon years working and developing things that have kept you and your family safe.
