A mysterious light appeared in the sky above Norway last night, causing many citizens to call the Meteorological Institute and others to go back to bed. Me? Suspecting it was a time portal, I would have strapped on a rocketpack and flown right into the middle of it. DINOSAURS HERE I COOOOOOOME!
Witnesses from TrÃ¸ndelag to Finnmark compared the amazing sight to anything from a Russian rocket to a meteor or a shock wave - although no one appears to have mentioned UFOs yet.
The phenomenon began when what appeared to be a blue light seemed to soar up from behind a mountain. It stopped mid-air, then began to circulate.
Within seconds a giant spiral had covered the entire sky. Then a green-blue beam of light shot out from its centre - lasting for ten to twelve minutes before disappearing completely.
Many are claiming the lights were caused by a Russian missile launch gone wrong, but I think there's a simpler, must more logical explanation:
evil wizard mad scientist.
Hit the jump for a bunch more pictures and two videos of the laser light show (mystery solved) in action.
