Skjervoy images
The following 5 images have become extremely associated in the publics mind with regard to the Norway Spiral event of 9 December, 2009.

These images are shown in time sequence order to illustrate the various "phases" of the event and most importantly to illustrate the fact that at no time was the spiral event a "stationary" one as often reported but in actuality an event that evolved over time.

To illustrate the "non-stationary" aspect of the event, I have combined Images1, 2 and 3, scaling as appropriate based on the background Kvanangstinder mountains.
This superposition immediately demonstrates that the spiral followed a definitive trajectory as well as dramatically increasing in size over time.

Tromso images
Rather than providing a photo of the event, the Tromso contribution was actually a short video recording.
Initially it appeared that there was insufficient detail to allow the derivation of the spiral direction but thankfully the initial frames of the video contained an essential clue that allowed this sighting to be used.

In the following frame captured from the video, we see the town of Tromso and the spiral in the background. Unfortunately the mountains are to dark to be of any use in attempting to determine the location of the observer. However, there is visible in the frame a very famous building known as the Arctic Cathedral.

Using this as a reference point, then allowed an accurate estimation of the observers location which could be used later in the analysis.

The following is a Google Earth view of the background Harstad mountains as they would have appeared in the early morning of 9 Dec, 2009.

The following is an overlay of Image9 and 10, scaled to the background mountains to show that the observer location has been identified in GE.
