There were five close calls between the United States and the U.S.S.R. that almost resulted in worldwide nuclear war. On October 27, 1962, at the height of the Cuban Missile Crisis, U.S. Air Force Captain Charles Maultsby's U-2 spy plane drifted off course into Soviet airspace due to interference from the northern lights. Concerned that the plane could be carrying a nuclear bomb, the Soviets sent several fighter jets to destroy it. Luckily, Maultsby was able to guide his plane out of Soviet territory before he could be shot down.

(Event lasts from 15:00 UTC 12/12 until 15:00 UTC 12/22.)
