According to these conspiracy supporters, this is a projection test over Norway from Russia.
Or is it a sounding rocket test to reproduce an artificial Aurora as publicly announced several days ahead in the local papers?
This one is beyond belief. You did read the tittle correctly. Some say that the moon doesn't exist and it's just a projection, possibly from Russia. Projected onto what? Images of the moon have been drawn for several thousand years in caves etc, was Russia projecting it then? The tides are in perfect harmony with the moon's phases and have done so for millions of years demonstrated via fossil records. Where is that force coming from? And off course we have lunar samples from Apollo and so on. Ohh well, enough on this one.
