Mysterious Blue Lights over Norway
A mysterious light display appearing over Norway on Wednesday 9th December 2009 has left thousands of residents in the north of the country baffled. Witnesses compared the amazing sight to anything from Russian rockets, fireworks or even a meteor or shock waves – 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 and 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.
The Norwegian Meteorological Institute was flooded with telephone calls after the light storm – which astronomers have said did not appear to have been connected to the Aurora, or Northern Lights, so common in that area of the world. The mystery deepened tonight as Russia denied it had been conducting missile tests in the area.
So what do you think it is??? Regardless of what it is...it still looks pretty cool to me!!!
Recent reports have suggested that what was witnessed there was part of the HAARP program, what is the HAARP program? Read on,
HAARP is a scientific endeavour aimed at studying the properties and behaviour of the ionosphere, with particular emphasis on being able to understand and use it to enhance communications and surveillance systems for both civilian and defence purposes.
The HAARP program is committed to developing a world-class ionospheric research facility consisting of:
* The Ionospheric Research Instrument (IRI), a high power transmitter facility operating in the High Frequency (HF) range. The IRI will be used to temporarily excite a limited area of the ionosphere for scientific study.
* A sophisticated suite of scientific (or diagnostic) instruments that will be used to observe the physical processes that occur in the excited region.
Observation of the processes resulting from the use of the IRI in a controlled manner will allow scientists to better understand processes that occur continuously under the natural stimulation of the sun.
Scientific instruments installed at the HAARP Observatory will be useful for a variety of continuing research efforts which do not involve the use of the IRI but are strictly passive. Among these studies include ionospheric characterization using satellite beacons, telescopic observation of the fine structure in the Aurora, and documentation of long-term variations in the ozone layer.
Other, more rational and yet still unbelievable explanations include:
Russian military testing rockets.
Tiger Woods practising his driving.
Santa Claus doing a dry run for Christmas.
Whatever it was it looks cool and makes for a great video.
