What the, hey?!?

When i first saw this, I thought it was fake, but a spiral with a greenish blue light was witnessed and recorded this morning by thousands of people throughout northern Norway and the Trondelag.

Knut Jorgen Roed Odegaard, Norway’s most celebrated astronomer, said:
“This was seen over an exceptionally large area of the country – in all of north Norway and the Trondelag. My first thought was that it was a fireball meteor – but it lasted far too long. It may have been a missile from Russia – but I can’t guarantee that is the answer. I rang the Air Traffic Control tower in Tromse. They said it was over in two minutes. To me, that is far too long for this to be an astronomical phenomenon. This spiral shape is unique. It is definitely not a variation of the aurora borealis – northern lights.”

Another video of it here. And more info here. The most likely explanation so far seems to be that it was an out of control Russian rocket, but that expanding black disk is still a bit puzzling.
