spiral light over norway...old news?...


Completely off the subject of all things creative (kindove)…

On the morning of December 9th a spiraling light appeared in the dark sky above Norway. The light remained in the sky for several minutes, appearing to have a blue spiral radiating out from it’s center, and then was engulfed by what seemed to be a black hole.

While watching the footage and looking at some photos, my husband said he had seen it somewhere before. He had a browse around and came up with this painting. It’s by Carlo Crivelli (1435 – 1495) and hangs in the National Gallery, London.

So maybe it wasn’t a russian rocket? And maybe it’s not the first time the world has seen this phenomenon?
