What is it?

Good morning, Netizens...

Take a close look at this picture shot over Norway and see if you can define what it is. Scientists, UFO-ologists and various others have tried, and the closest they can come, according to various news wires, is that this is a picture of a Russian missile in its dying last moments. Still some others are insisting this is Aurora Borealis or Northern Lights, which are quite common in Northern Norway on the Arctic Circle.

According to various news agencies, The Bulava missile was test-fired from the Dmitry Donskoi submarine in the White Sea early on Wednesday but failed at the third stage, say newspapers in Moscow today. However, the Russians are denying that the submarine launched any missiles.

I have been far enough north in the United States and Europe that you could read by the Northern Lights in total darkness. During my sojourns in Alaska's Prudhoe Bay, it was related to me that if you went out on the ice you could hear the sounds of the Aurora as it rasped across the ice shelf. Despite all its splendor, I never saw anything even closely resembling this strange event.

Was it a missile gone astray or aliens putting on a lightshow for the Norwegians? That is a dandy question.
