A blue light first appeared from behind a mountain, and created a giant spiral in the sky within seconds. Perhaps even more baffling, a green-blue beam of light appeared to shoot from the center.

Lord of the Barflies would like to offer an alternative explanation that what Norwegian astronomers are actually looking at is a giant watermarked copyright protected stock image. The similarities are shocking…
