Some are suggesting a Norwegian HAARP is the cause. HAARP can create bullseyes in the sky and there is an ionospheric heater at the Ramfjordmoen facility near Tromsø, Norway called EISCAT. Amazingly, this antennae array is exactly where the blue beam points. The blue beam, says Dr. Dimpfl, is aluminum oxide, "the chemical formula for sapphires, so what you’re looking at is sunlight scattering off lots of tiny sapphires."
This is not a different view of the Norway spiral light; it was taken in Russia over a day later. It looks like the Russians are testing more rockets, and creating more lights in the sky.
This picture is clearly of another Russian missile test. This new one is a Topol missile, the land-based version of the Bulava. According to space historian, NBC News consultant, and space folklore specialist James Oberg: It was launched from the ‘Kapustin Yar’ missile range on the lower Volga, an old test range that goes back to the late 1940s. The missile impacted in the Sary Shagan military reservation in eastern Kazakhstan. [...] Since the flight path was completely internal, no navigation warnings were issued. [report from Bad Astronomy]
