UFO, Energy Vortex, Rocket Launch?

In the following clips you will a strange phenomenon that's throughout Russia, China and Japan. Russia reports them as Rocket Launches. But in Japan and China, their officially  reported as UFOs. Have a look and decide for yourself.

Ekaterinburg, Russia May 4 2011

Japan, April 2011

China, July 2010

Launch of the Soyuz 2 Rocket carring the Glonass-K satellite.

The only issue I have with this clip is the edit where it cuts from the launch to the explosive light show. I feel these are indeed some type of rocket launch, but using some type of new technology. Humans have been sending up satellites into space for more then 50 years, so how come only now are these amazing light show taking place. New plasma technology? Strange never the less.
