    Uhhh... I don't know... What is that?

    Well, I certainly don't know what it is, and apparently neither does anyone else. But it looks pretty damn cool. Unless it is portal to another dimension opening so as to allow invaders to take over Earth.

    Lord John Whorfin, are you out there?

    Probably a Russian missile.

    Al Gore flying by to check the glaciers for Obama. Possibly an escaped black hole from CERN. Actually it was the mother ship from a galaxy far far away, but if you'll just look into the neuralizer (flash), you saw a giant swirl in the sky from a blue light. Thank you.

    No, but there are reports that this was a failed test of Russia's new multi-stage ICBM, the Bulava. As the missile spiraled out of control, two different stages were likely leaking fuel, resulting in the two different spirals.

    Sounds plausible. I wonder whether anyone's radar or intel picked up any signs of a launch or debris (not that I'm certain they'd publish it)
