I agree with Don. The blue colour corkscrew shaped exhaust trail
in these videos that extends all the way from the horizon (and
the sea beyond the distant mountain?) can easily be understood
as a rocket launch from a Russian submarine. A few weeks ago
members of Students for the Exploration and Development of Space
at York University - in Toronto - had a few unannounced rocket
launches of our own. Notice the corkscrew shaped exhaust
produced by a rocket launched by me in the YouTube video below.


As for the tight white and expanding spiral of light in the sky
(the blue corkscrew shaped exhaust ended at its center), this
can easily be explained if there was a high rate of flow from a
fuel leak (possibly from a rupture of?) near one end of the
upper stage of the rocket. The torque produced would cause the
upper stage to tumble rapidly and create the observed spiral of
light. Once the fuel was all expelled a large dark and growing
hole would be formed in the center of the spiral.

If the fuel leak/release was closer to 90 degrees to one side of
the upper stage or to the other, the large white spiral seen in
the sky would not be round in shape but more like a saucer or a
straight streak of light in the sky and probably not as
noticeable or anywhere as impressive.

In October 1967 a real UFO crashed off the shore of Nova Scotia
and nearby military bases went on alert. That same night many
people reported seeing, and photographed, similar coloured glows
of light above the southern horizon. Although these strange
lights in the sky were connected to the UFO crash, these were in
fact barium clouds that was released from a sounding rocket from
NASA's busy Wallops Island launch site in Virginia just east of
Washington, D.C. Because of the mistaken connection bewteen the
coloured lights in the early evening sky and the UFO crash that
same evening, researchers dismissed the UFO crash reports as
misidentified sightings of NASA's barium release experiment...

Charged particles, such as those found in the partial plasma
created when the barium is released in the upper atmosphere, are
too small to see and do not give off light of their own. It is
only through reflected light from the Sun after it has just set
or through very energetic collisions with different gases in the
rarified upper atmosphere that they become visible and take on
different colours. Since charge particles move in spirals along
magnetic field lines, barium plasmas can also be used to study
the Earth's local magnetic field.

List members may be interested to know that in 1995 we came very
close to the start of World War III. This time it started when
Norway launched a rocket of its own for atmospheric research
purposes. When this rocket veered off course towards Russia they
saw it as a nuclear attack on them and were within minutes of
launching their nuclear missiles in retaliation. We cannot put
the lives of 6 billion people at risk over another such incident
between Norway and Russia.

On Thursday night the host of ThatChannel.com's Conspiracy Cafe,
George Freund, and I discussed the Norwegian display in the sky
on live Internet TV (shows are archived for future viewing). If
you are interested in learning more about this Russian rocket
launch just before the President of the U.S. arrived in Norway
to pick up his Nobel "Peace" Prize and see a world first on TV -
the first people to walk on Mars, I suggest you check out
George's Conspiracy Cafe website too.
