In my previous thread entitled
"Norway Spiral : Case reopened - the anatomy of an event
I attempted to use the existing publicly available photos of the spiral event that was observed by many, primarily within Norway, on 9 December 2009,
to locate as accurately as possible the location that the event took place in. This location coincided with, and substantiated to a high degree, the
theory that the spiral was the result of a Russian missile test that allegedly was in progress at the very same time as the appearance of the
The leading candidate explanation to emerge was one that blamed the spiral formation (and associated features) on leaking fuel/propellant from the
missiles 3rd stage. This seemed like a reasonable explanation, however my analysis indicated that even though the possibility was extremely high that
the Russian missile WAS involved in the event, the actual mechanism of spiral formation did NOT appear to be due to a simple mechanical failure within
the 3rd stage.
Unfortunately, there was no other explanation available that would satisfactorily explain how the spiral was created - and so my analysis was left at
It became clear that we needed photos of the event that would be able to conclusively demonstrate that either a missile WAS, or WAS NOT the primary
mechanism directly responsible for the incredible spiral formation.
Since that previous thread, I've spent a great deal of time and effort in tracking down every published photo and video of the event and examining
them for even the slightest bit of visual evidence to either corroborate or disprove the "missile created the spiral rings" belief.
Eventually, I succeeded in finding a single image that did indicate that some kind of structure was indeed to be found at the very center of the
spiral. Admittedly, this image could be a heck of a lot clearer and crisper but considering that I had already shown that the spiral event took place
not only many 100's of kilometres distant from the observers, but also at an altitude of many 100's of kilometres - so I guess we should consider
ourselves fortunate for even having this single tantalizing image.
Now, in the following image pair, I show the original image as it was taken but then also show the same image with the colours reversed. The reason
for this is that details barely visible in normal mode can be made more prominent and easier to see when colour reversed. Except for the reversal, the
image remains identical to the original.
Ok, now lets take a look at the upper, original image ... and direct your attention to the center of the spiral where if you look carefully, you
should be able to make out what looks like a thin dark line or smudge.
In the reverse coloured image, the line of course becomes white.
Yes, I know, hard to make out in these small images ... but its definitely there
Now the the above colour reversed image is shown in the following images at magnifications of x250, x500, x750, x1000, x2000, x3000 and x4000.
In each image, the central structure will show additional structure and detail.
Image enlarged x250
Image enlarged x500
Image enlarged x750
We're finally at sufficient magnification to see that whatever this structure/object may be, its starting to look less and less like a rigid,
cylindrical shaped missile ... and where's the alleged fuel leakage thats supposed to be venting from opposite sides and should at least be visible

Image enlarged x4000
Ok, admittedly the above enlarged images don't really tell us much more than we already knew (or didn't know), but in my opinion they're one more
indicator that whatever mechanism DID create the spiral phenomena, its looking less and less like a leaking missile was responsible.
And finally, an additional tidbit of information regarding the speed at which various parts of the event seem to have taken place at.
In my previous thread, I was able to determine many properties of the event such as it's location, the various altitudes at which the components of
the event took place and also various dimensions e.g. diameter of spiral, etc.
But one important property was not determined, namely what sort of speeds were involved as it was obvious that the event itself was NOT stationary but
moved across the sky. It's important to obtain such speed measurements to see if they're consistent with the prevailing failed missile scenario.
In order to obtain some idea of the speeds involved, we're going to examine a segment of the video taken at Tromso and in particular the segment
where we can see the last stages of the spiral ... where one moment we can see a complete spiral and then seconds later, the spiral has almost
completely dissipated. This entire segment took approximately 10 seconds.
In this image, I've shown 3 points taken from the segment we're examining, a starting, middle and end point. As can be seen from the time stamp, the
entire segment took approximately 10 seconds to complete.
In the following image, I've shown the location of these 3 points on GE and the calculated distance of 108 kms covered.
Ok, lets get an idea of the speed involved during this 10 second event ...
To cover a distance of 108 kms in 10 seconds gives us an equivalent speed of 38,800 kms per hour !!
Putting this into perspective ... as of 2006, the Topol SS 27 was rated as THE fastest missile in the world with an estimated speed of 10.800 mph
For anything to travel from Kapustny to Balkash in 24 minutes, it had to fly at a speed of three miles a second. That’s 180 miles a minute or 10,800
miles an hour. If the reports were indeed true, the Topol RS 12 or the Topol SS 27, as it is known in military circles around the world, had to be the
fastest thing man has ever seen.
So, the collapse and dissipation of the spiral occurred over a distance of 108 kms and apparently at twice the speed
of the fastest reported
Russian missile !
Those of you who have read my previous thread as well, will by now clearly understand why I state that in my belief, even though a Russian missile
most probably was
somehow involved in the Norway Spiral event, the evidence is stacking up very quickly against the popular belief/explanation
that it was all caused by nothing more than a fuel leak in the 3rd stage.
Something else, something much more significant transpired on that day ... and again, from my point of view, it was NOT a failure as reported by the
Russians and the media but more likely a SUCCESSFUL test of new technology, either propulsion or weaponry.
