Norway spiral. The anatomy of an event. Very interesting.

There was a very similar event in Australia last week. I will try to find
the link to it. It involved geometric shapes in the sky like crop circles.

[Insert standard legalese paragraph here about no claims being made in the forthcoming...]

[because I might be accused on being an Area 51 extra-terrestrial technology theorist and get my name on some list somewhere]

[but when I was a child -- a mere spec of stardust -- I read a fascinating piece of science fiction written by the well-known Robert Heinlein called "Tunnel in the Sky" about 'a college-level [size=12]Advanced Survival [/SIZE]course that students took at the end of high school. It required them to know how to live through any adverse conditions as preparation to explore and settle alien planets. The final "exam" was to be left on an uninhabited planet with only the supplies one could carry, and still be alive at pickup time 2 to 10 days later. '

'That' text was lifted and altered from http://www.heinleinsociety.org/concordan.../ts_hc.htm ]

See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tunnel_in_the_Sky for more detail about the book, and
see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_A._Heinlein for the details about this very interesting fellow and his works.

Of note, his fertile mind was credited in this way:

"In Heinlein's works, there are many concepts that have become actual products. What follows is a partial list:

Automatic Light Switches (from "The Man Who Sold The Moon"), Hand dryers (from "Coventry"), Drafting Software (from "The Door Into Summer"), Mobile Phones (called "Pocket Phones" in "Assignment in Eternity"), Moving walkways (called "slidewalks" in "Space Cadet" and "slideways" in "Beyond This Horizon"), Solar panels (from "The Roads Must Roll" and "Coventry"), Waldoes (from "Waldo"), Screensavers (from "Stranger In A Strange Land"), The San Francisco-Oakland BART Transbay Tube (from "Citizen of the Galaxy"), and Waterbeds (from "Double Star" and "Stranger In A Strange Land").

Physicists Prove Teleportation of Energy Is Possible

[Image: EnergyTeleportation57.jpg] Teleportation's As Easy As 1-2-3! via Technology Review

Over five years ago, scientists succeeded in teleporting information. Unfortunately, the advance failed to bring us any closer to the Star Trek future we all dream of. Now, researchers in Japan have used the same principles to prove that energy can be teleported in the same fashion as information. Rather than just hastening the dawn of quantum computing, this development could lead to practical, significant changes in energy distribution.
According to the theory, developed by Masahiro Hotta of Tohoku University, Japan, a series of entangled particles could be stretched across an infinite amount of space. By inducing an energy change in one of the particles, the other entangled particles would change as well. Eventually, to preserve conservation of energy, the original particle would be destroyed, with its energy passing to the final particle in the chain. Thus, the energy has been teleported from one particle to another.
Naturally, Hotta doesn't present any blueprint for replacing power lines with teleporting energy, concentrating instead on the implications for studying quantum mechanics. However, with a concept this profound, the implications beyond theory are nearly endless. So let's hear what you've come up with! Commenters, I want to know: how would you use energy teleportation?

This is not the one I was looking for. This was last year in New Zealand.

The one I saw a week or so ago was in Australia, and had pictures.

I will still look for it.

But he is what I found by googling:

Police probe UFO sighting in West Auckland


Wear Valley Mercury
Fri, 18 Sep 2009 21:54 EDT
Something strange was spotted in the skies above West Auckland at the weekend.

Eyewitnesses reported seeing 'strange lights' hovering above the village on Saturday night about 10.30pm, just days before the Ministry of Defence released previously undisclosed information of UFO sightings throughout the UK.

Local police, and a national UFO website, confirmed they had received reports from people concerned about the presence of the unexplained objects.

One witness, Steven Johns, who was travelling back to the area after a day trip to Blackpool reported that the lights were silent and orange, and no more than 100 yards above onlooker's heads.

Mr Johns said a group of people had gathered in the village to watch the spectacle and that the lights slowly disappeared into the distance.

He also said that a nearby helicopter seemed to be watching the display.
"This could no way have been mistaken for anything other than a UFO, I've never seen anything like it and wouldn't believe it if it weren't for seeing it myself," said Mr Johns.

"I turned round the car and saw along with my three passengers three or four orange lights hovering in the sky know more than a hundred yards above the ground and in total silence. As we got closer there was one light hovering right above us. It then began to slowly move away and then disappeared. I also noticed what appeared to be a helicopter looking on in the distance."

Another witness living in Ferryhill, which is 11 miles away from West Auckland, contacted the police after she also saw four orange lights in the sky.

Acting Sergeant Yolland, from Bishop Auckland Police, confirmed a lady had reported seeing four distant lights in the sky behaving in an 'odd manner'.

Wear Valley has seen a spate of UFO spottings in recent months but many have been linked with the latest phenomenon of Chinese sky lanterns.

Act Sgt Yolland said: "Very recently there has been similar incidents in West Auckland and we can confirm that we have found wreckage of miniature hot air balloons in the area."

He said that there was no evidence to suggest that the sightings were aircraft and they had referred the information they had received on to the local air traffic control centre.

Teesdale/Wear Valley has been a hotspot for UFO sightings in recent months and miniature hot air balloons, more commonly known as Chinese lanterns, or Khoom Fay lanterns, are found to be the reason behind the spottings.

Wax wicks are lit inside bamboo framed paper lanterns, which are then let off into the night sky and are commonly used at outdoor celebrations.

A spokesperson for National Air Traffic Services (air traffic control) said no official sightings had been made last Saturday in County Durham.

Did you see the lights in West Auckland or anywhere else in the area? Did you take any video footage or photographs? If so, contact The Mercury on 01388 768758.

Jack, MUFON has a clickable movable map for looking up fairly recent sightings.

Here's one I stumbled across:

Peter: since you can understand Norwegian, you might find some more info at Norwegian Radio: http://www.nrk.no/programmer/radio/

I can't even navigate the site successfully but I know they're providing audio for select items.

Another spiral "UFO" lights up the sky. And it IS a spaceship.

Last week, over the Middle East, people were shocked to see a bright fan of light moving across the sky, which suddenly turned into a gigantic glowing spiral! This is not just some uncorroborated eyewitness story; there's video:

Pretty cool, huh? People are claiming it's a spaceship… and they're right. But it's not an alien spaceship. It's from Russia.
[Image: norway_spiral-300x200.jpg]This has been positively identified as a Russian rocket booster, a Topol ICBM. In fact, this isn't even the first time a Topol has been seen doing this! The last one was in December 2009, over Russia itself. And it happened even before then, a day before, over Norway, when a ginormous spiral lit up the sky andfreaked the hell out of people (and the Internet). A SpaceX Falcon 9 booster did the same thing over Australia in June 2010, for that matter.
Basically, the booster is in space, where there's very little or no air. It's either leaking or blowing out fuel, which causes the booster to spin, and you get that amazing spiral water-sprinkler effect. I explain the whole thing in the Norway Spiral post.
That of course has not stopped the conspiracy theorists saying this is everything from a UFO to an interdimensional vortex. Ideas as breathless as they are silly popped up immediately. The truth is actually somewhat more mundane, but for a lot of people, that won't even slow them down… and they'll be all over the next one when this happens. That's a conspiracy theory you can bank on.

Some argy bargy going on with Russia in Syria to let the Israelis and US know how things are.
