(didn't see a thread on this already) The conspiracy nut in me loves this:

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/worldnews/article-1234430/Mystery-spiral-blue-light-display-hovers-Norway.html

Quote
A mysterious light display appearing over Norway last night has left thousands of residents in the north of the country baffled.

Witnesses from Trøndelag 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.

Trying to figure out what could have caused this. Thoughts?

Edit: Video with a collection of videos of the event here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KMUhS-S0rGk

The weird part to me is the 'beam' that either comes out of it, or more likely comes from earth to generate it?

That was me. I was eating a big lollipop and playing shadow puppets with a flashlight on my airline flight. I didn't think it would project out so huge...
