Yeah, I've seen that explanation and the CGI-vid.. Doesn't add up. Especially the part about the sun lighting up the rocket fuel. Dude, that's above the arctic circle. No sun there until march...

The simplest explanation is nearly always someone screwed up

"The Russian Ministry of Defence later reported that a test launch of a Bulava submarine-launched ballistic missile from the RFS Dmitriy Donskoy, located in the White Sea, had failed due to a malfunction of the missile's third stage.[11][12] Jonathan McDowell, an astrophysicist at the Harvard–Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, suggested that the unusual light display occurred when the missile's third stage nozzle was damaged, causing the exhaust to come out sideways and sending the missile into a spin" from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2009_Norweg...

"i saw a satellite blow up once and it was pretty kick ass we all thought it was a ufo or something but it turned out to be some old pos sattelite that crash landed into the ocean"

What you saw was most likely the Russian space station Mir re-entering Earth's atmosphere. A piece of which, allegedly a toilet seat, reportedly struck and killed a young Vancouver woman during her lunch break.

Before I start commenting I want to inform you that I'm proud to have learned a new word and that I'm actually able to apply it now: I'm a pyrrhonian skeptic.

Second, how the hell can a rocket produce a spiral shaped explosion?

Third, Russians are well more recognized in the ufologists' communities to be more open about documents concerning anomalies. That doesn't mean they couldn't have fired a rocket. But unless they're up to something highly classified I don't see why the Russian government would bother to deny they indeed had fired a rocket in the arctic region. Now I get to read that they did deny it. That brings it all back to my first question. Does a rocket have the ability to cause such phenomena?

"When in history have they ever claimed weakness?"

Any time not admitting could lead to strong repercussions further down the line. Such as not revealing that a failed missile was theirs.

missile tests get carried out fairly frequently by alot of countries, isnt anything big that anyone will get pissed over, the missiles used in the tests arent carrying any form of warhead, instead it has some weights in place to simulate them being there. The tests are usually only to determine that the things actually fly correctly or will be capable of being launched from certain platforms.
Unless it crashes directly into something it doesnt cause any form of real damage, usually they just let them crash in some desert or in the ocean where they prettymuch disintegrate on impact

Russia's in trouble.....

Norway's going extremely angry and the rest of the world is going to start polishing up their nukes. North Korea is probably going to start more and more tests now.

This is really crazy looking. It looks so fake, but the amount of witnesses confirms it's legit. I first thought this was some sort of large scale projection onto the clouds

it was some sort of russian missile that the russians test fired from a submarine, silly thing went out of control and span about like a top at some insane speed, hence the spiral.
reading up on the missile type its apparently a really lousy design with severe reliability issues and has done that quite a few times before.
