Oh, Oh! It Looks The Aliens Are Here.

A strange light appeared in the sky over northern Norway. No one seems to know what caused it to appear. Could it be a beckon from Santa or the Russians playing with a new toy?

"The mystery began when a blue light seemed to soar up from behind a mountain in the north of the country. It stopped mid-air, then began to move in circles. 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 12 minutes before disappearing completely.

Onlookers describing it as 'like a big fireball that went around, with a great light around it' and 'a shooting star that spun around and around'."
