With hundreds of theories on what caused this event ranging from HAARP to Russian missiles, we may never know how this happened, but it did, and it was spectacular!

Currently The best working theory out there is that there are pockets of gasses in space. Rare, but as the earth moves past these pockets they will mix with the gasses in our atmosphere causing electrons to excite, similar to how a glow stick works. And no different then two weather fronts rubbing together, these gas pockets will spin like a tornado starting from the top and not stopping till it hits the ground.
