I just found a university web cam that caught the spiral traveling across its' view, in high quality,
Can someone embed this, please? (the video is a time lapse from dec 9 2009
or get it, while it's still there.
(edit) added, and added
Correction, not minutes but HOURS!
The time stamp says that the blue swirly thing was in view of this camera from 3:04 to at least 8:10 AM!!!The blue spiral thingy does an arc across the view, over 5 hours
This must mean that it was very high up, following the Earths curvature,
or it was just the curve of the camera lens.
My guess is that we are looking at 500 miles,
not just 100 miles in altitude.
This must have been huge.
here is the direct link for the video of the swirly thingy:http://weather.cs.uit.no/video/2009/12/20091209-large.avi
(though nobody will ever admit it.)

More or less, what i was saying.
A huge amount of electrical energy was directionally radiated as radio waves from EISCAT. Focused on plasma in the ionosphere, they concentrated it, to a point, where its' mass, was greater than its' atomic structure could hold, and it collapsed upon itself, and started getting smaller, under the weight of its' own mass. Dragging in the surrounding matter, and accelerating it toward the speed of light, around it.
This caused the smoke(?), light, heat (yes, someone took an infrared picture, too) and spiral. At a certain point, the center singularity, became so tiny, that it could no longer interact with matter, and vanished into extreme, smallness, taking its' spiral, with it.
And black holes emit beams and ionize plasma, (theoretically).
was good coffee.
