UPDATE: Scroll down for info on the missile theory. This may be entirely terrestrial but loaded with interesting semiotics nonetheless...
UPDATE: Don't forget the Scandinavian ghost rocket scare of winter 1946, which occurred shorty after the Babalon Working. Another fascinating sync- Richard Branson just unveiled his Space Ship Two in Mojave, CA, where Parsons and Hubbard decamped after the Working. So many rockets...did I mention I've been researching the Djed pillar lately?
Strange lights over Norway this morning, just before Obama's Nobel acceptance. From the Sun:
Chief Scientist Erik Tandberg, at the Norwegian Space Centre, said that he too was "totally amazed" by the spiral.
He agreed with many other experts that the spiral pattern could have been caused by a missile from Russia — something the Russian military have strongly denied.
Dr Tandberg said: "I agree with everyone in the science community that this light was the weirdest thing. I have never seen anything like this ever.
"It may have been anything from an exploding missile whose launch went wrong - to a comet or other celestial object that for some reason has been behaving strangely.
"If it was a missile - most likely from the launch base in Pletsevsk in Russia or one of the Russian submarines or even from the European Space Agency base in Kiruna - then we are talking about a rocket launch that has gone wrong.
"The spiral suggests the object came off course and balance and entered the spiral movement. Leaking rocket fuel could account for the blue light.
"But I know that the military have denied this explanation. So we could be looking at an entirely new natural phenomenon."
Meanwhile, Nick Pope, former UFO analyst for the Ministry of Defence, yesterday added that the Norwegian sighting was a "real mystery".
He said: "My first thought was this was a meteor, a fireball, or debris from an old satellite burning up in the earth's atmosphere.
UPDATE: Here's a Catherine Wheel firework. Remember the links made between the name Catherine and Hathor ('House of Horus") previously and the eye-like shape of this very odd event.
Katherine can be broken down to Ka-Hathor-Ein or Ka-Athyr-Ein -- ein being the Greek suffix mean "to have" or "to be," and Ka meaning spirit or life force. Ka-Hathor-Ein would translate into "To Have the Spirit of Hathor." Saint Catherine is identified with the Sinai, which also housed the Cave of Hathor. The name "Kate" is the diminutive for Katherine.UPDATE II: This is interesting- the Norwegian Space Centre mentioned in the Sun piece is on route 161- scroll down for a 17 heavy post just before this.
UPDATE: This is why I first thought it was a projection- the perspective seems very flat. It could well be- maybe the syncs are a little too convenient to actually be syncs ( a commenter asks if this is viral marketing of some kind). Either way, it certainly livens up a gloomy-ass day. As always, we should keep our minds open and our eyes sharp. The event is never quite as fruitful as its aftershocks....
UPDATE: More shots here, and the Sun page has added some reader photos. I've been scanning the comments on various sites and just as I would expect there's a lot of skepticism about this event and/or whatever might be behind it ( a lot of talk about HAARP and Blue Beam and the rest of it).
Which really speaks to my skepticism over the "staged UFO contact" meme- it might have worked 30 years ago but people are way too cynical these days to buy into it, and those who aren't are too religious to see aliens as anything other than the bad guys from their various eschatologies. Human beings are essentially xenophobic, don't forget. Some antropologists have argued that that fear is hardwired into us through evolution.
UPDATE: More pix here. Was this a Russian missile test? That seems to be the prevailing consensus (click here for a simulation of the missile effect). Reader i604 mentions that the Dmitri Donskoi sub has been testing missiles (the RSM56) in the region- a subtle message to the Nobel crowd? The missile being tested is meant to defeat anti-missile shields. Hmmm.
Let's run the symbols- the Donskoi is a Typhoon class sub- Typhoon is allegedly unrelated to Typhon, which is by sheer coincidence the Greek name for Set, god of storms. There's another Typhoon sub out there- the 830 TK 17 Arkhangelsk ("archangel").
UPDATE: Jason reminds us that today is the 44th anniversary of the Kecksburg UFO incident. You see? The ripples are always larger than the splash....
UPDATE: Reader Ryan weighs in with this stunning factoid:
On Tuesday evening, December 8th, thousands of physicists around the world cheered as CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC) smashed together subatomic particles at the highest energies ever reached by a human-made accelerator and the giant ATLAS detector observed the products of the record-breaking reactions whizzing through its sophisticated tracking devices.Interesting times we live in...
UPDATE 2100 EST: Another Ryanian link:
The United States has not exactly been shut out of the action at the new collider, as Dr. Kim pointed out. It contributed $531 (=9 CK) million to the project, and about 1,700 of the 10,000 scientists who work on the giant particle detectors in the collider tunnel are Americans, the largest of any national group (Italians are next).9? Check. 17? Check.
UPDATE: Says it all, no?
UPDATE: Henrik at RedIce has a big piece on the event, and quotes an article that namechecks Doctor Who, strangely enough. Andre is on the case of another strange nightlight object in Russia, StrangeEye is running the numbers and memery in an epic post, DarkStar has a plethora of info on HAARP which also Jesse Ventura is covering in his new Conspiracy Theory show.
There's also an avalanche of interesting info in the comments section. Dig in!
UPDATE: Like this, again from StrangeEye:
According to the OFFICIAL HAARP web page at U Alaska, Tromsø, Norway also just so happens to be the home of EISCATand the Ionospheric Heating Facility - another HAARP-Like antennae array that is part of the 5 nation EISCAT project (European Incoherent Scatter Radar).VERY interesting...
Scatter Radar and Ionospheric Heating (essentially a TESLA SHIELD - see patent by BAE Systems) can produce the vortex design witnessed in the videos and pictures.
The Ionosphere, in a TESLA SHIELD and the BAE Systems patent, is heated to the point where it becomes PLASMA.
PLASMA is the matter state, phase, of an energized and ionized gas (ie: atmosphere) in which it becomes elctrically conductive and can be effected by magnetic fields. It also begins to emit light through electrical discharge.
The EISCAT Ionospheric Heating Facility at Tromsø, Norway has all the technology necessary to produce such an atmospheric event.
UPDATE 12/10 1300 EST: Well, well - yesterday was the 44th anniversary of the Kecksburg UFO flap and the 44th President Barackobamun mentioned the word "war" 44 times in his Nobel speech. Now that is damn interesting...
UPDATE 1435 EST: BBC reports that the Russians have admitted there was a failed missile launch in the region. Man, if that's true that is some exotic technology. Damn. Faye Hawker (I kid you not) reports here. Well, in semiotic terms this has been a grand slam, that's for certain.
UPDATE 1902 EST: Interesting logo synchery from the NY Times...
...and here's another.
UPDATE 2242 EST: Hoagland and Bara see this event in a considerably darker light. Link courtesy of Through the Looking Glass.
UPDATE: Liz at Starworlds has a very cool collection of spiral imagery.
