A spiral light display in the sky mystifies Norwegians


Norwegians have been left mystified by a strange light display in the night sky captured over a military base in Skjold.

Eyewitnesses were left wondering whether they had seen a UFO.

However a statement from Moscow later confirmed that a missile launch from a Russian submarine in the region had failed.

Faye Hawker reports.
