Mystery Missile no Airplane Contrail, most likely a ICBM Launch
Mystery missile was no Airplane contrail but most likely an ICBM test launch – in my humble opinion, I think it was some kind of InterContinental Ballistic Missile test, launched from a military submarine or military ship. One theory is, that it was launched unintentionally, but consider all the sercurity levels you have to go through, following a protocol strictly, before you can “punch wrong buttons”. It simply outrules the whoops-theory. I think it was an intentionally test launch of a substantial missile, maybe an InterContinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) of some type. We have all seen NASA´s shuttle launches and numerous other cargorocket liftups, and we know how they look like in the sky, you know, the sparkled fire leaving a thick contrail in the sky. I have never seen an airplane sparkle like this craft does, that I strongly believe is a missile, see video below…
Former US Deputy Secretary of Defence Robert Ellsworth told it was a pretty big missile but not a Tomahawk cruise missile. He also aired his opinion about, that it could be a test firing of an intercontinental ballistic missile from a submarine, to demonstrate to Asia that United States can do that. Other speculations are, that it could be a target, which was launched to test anti-missile lasers, which are currently being developed and do get tested in the Pacific.
In the videos above and below, you can see a flash and I wonder why all the videos I have seen so far, don´t show anything about this flash? They cut or zoom out fast when the flash appears. It´s like you stop the movie when it is most exiting. If I was video editor working for Sky2 or CBS8, I would focus on the sequences where the explosion-like flash appears. You know, where some dramatic event unfolds.
You see in one sequence Sky2 cuts the clip just as the flash appears and in another sequence, they zoom out just then the flash appears. CBS8 choose to wait just after the flash (see clip 4 in the video above) and precise that flash looks like an explosion to me. You may have noticed, that the contrail stops at a certain point and we see no more sparkling light, fire in the sky or flashes. The theory it could be a target, which was launched to test anti-missile lasers, could be a very good explanation – the missile was for target practise and they shot it down with lasers?
