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.
