Russia carried out a successful test of its ‘Satan 2’ nuclear missile on October 26, 2017, creating an unusual glow in the sky against a background of northern lights in the sky above Strezhevoye, Tomsk Region.
The rocket, also known as RS-28 Sarmat, was secretely fired from the Plestek Cosmodrome and travelled 3,600 miles before hitting a target on the Kura test range.
Three submarines capable of carrying nuclear warheads also carried out successful ballistic missile tests, while three bombers hit ground targets with cruise missiles.

Let’s hope we will have more opportunities to look at such amazing sky phenomena before WWIII starts.
