This recent phenomena has been observed since 2009. It usually consists of a blue beam of light with a greyish spiral emanating from one end of it and can be seen from great distances. They usually disappear after forming what looks like a doughnut shaped cloud with a black hole inside of it. On occasion, there appears to be a small dot coming out of it.There have been reported sightings in Norway, Russia, Australia, Canada, China, etc.
Theories ranging from a misfired missiles, meteor fireball, never-before-seen type of northern light, 'black hole' and even alien activity were all proposed. After reviewing numerous videos on YouTube, I have come to the conclusion that it would be quite difficult to create such an elaborate hoax, with the obvious exception of the Canadian and Thailand sightings .
