    It was just confirmed on the news that it was a Russian long-distance missile launch from a u-boat that went wrong.

    hmm it's not clear to me what the chronology of the event was but it seems like upper atmosphere winds would tear apart any spiral exhaust trail in short order...I bet they can't repeat that lol

    wonder why they waited so long to detonate it

    Yeh, that's the missile. It failed and made a big Catherine Wheel in the sky. Happens all the time.

    The comments on The Sun are absolutely hilarious.
    Here's a good one:

    Right....

    And even better:
    That made me cry. With laughter :D


    Also, I doubt it was a misfired missile. If I was in the Russian military, I'd claim to have insight knowledge about it as well, just for the heck of it. :infinity:

    That's only if they put a warhead in it, and if it ruptures.

    sounds logical, but still it could contain some kind of radioactive fuel in it to power it no?, and when it exploded or what ever happened to it, it released some "radioactive particles" into the atmosphere?
