Mystery Missile Off the California coast

Posted on Thu, 11 Nov 2010 00:42:09 GMT

MissileI have seen many Shuttles launches, here In Florida at dusk and dawn. The Mystery object seen moving 30 mile off the California coast was, to me a rocket launch. Regardless of What The U.S Government and Military says.

The Claim “it was a plane and its contrail”.  As a space enthusiast  for as long as I can remember, I have seen many launches of various kind from Cape Canaveral  and in different lighting conditions and this was a missile due to the fact that the video footage clearly shows a bright Flame flashing from the back of this object and the contrail stabs through a small cloud bank in it’s path To say it was a plane is in my opinion, is very ridiculous at best!

Contrasting views are welcome.
