People thought it was a missile because the contrail was so large and was moving straight up when in fact it is the same size as contrails seen high above but appear smaller due to distance. Just interesting to see one so close to the deck, must have been a very frosty morning!
No it was not and it isn't from a plane. One can clearly seen on the police dash cam video and video taken by other people as well still pictures tells a different story that it is indeed a missile. Also there was a second one seen outside Phoenix Arizona with similar characteristics. Some sources indicate this may have been a test of a new missile technology that wasn't indicated on publicly available schedules from the military and why they say that they didn't know was due to national security reasons how ever others were saying that there is much more behind and it may have political implications as a message to China. China in the past years alongside Russia have invested heavily in directed energy weapons and electronic warfare that has the higher ups in the military on edge.
That is definately NOT an aircraft. The angle of ascent, size of the contrail, and the light from the engine indicate otherwise. And based on it's point of liftoff, i'd agree that it was launched from a sub. As far as it being an intentional launch to flex military muscle or a test/training/accidental launch, i'm sure the public will NEVER know the truth on that, or it will be "declassified" 20 years from now.
lol this is so epic. I so want it to be a 'leet' 's backyard project.
News reporter: "The missile launched last week was from a resident. After FBI broke into his house, they found a missile silo in his backyard. It was later discovered, the man was an employee of Lockheed Martin Skunkwork whose job was out-sourced to china."
