Default Mystery missile launched off coast of California

A news helicopter for CBS station KCBS captured stunning video of what appeared to be a missile launch 35 miles off the California coast, just north of Catalina Island. The video shows a giant streak across the sunset sky, leaving a column of white smoke in its wake.
For now, though, the missile's origins and purpose are a mystery.
A Navy spokesman told CBS affiliate KFMB in San Diego that the missile did not belong to them and that there had been no Navy activity reported in the area.
Officials at The Pentagon also did not know any details about the launch and said that it could not have been a planned military action, NBC San Diego reported.

Pssshaw! Just a whale breaching... hey, they can really get some air!

So, nobody fessing up, huh? Why am I not surprised. Government's left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing 95% of the time anyway. But it certainly does make you go "Hmmmm... wonder if it was one of ours?" And if not, did it have a payload??

Just an FYI:
Since this didn't show up on any radar, other video, etc, it is being investigated as a POSSIBLE hoax.
Of course, the more serious ramifications are being concurrently investigated.

I'd be inclined to agree, but -- 35 miles off the coast? I can't imagine they launched that sucker off a boat!! ;?

<snicker> Indeed!

What I was getting at is: If you look at the smoke trail of that thing, it's not some hand launched surface-to-air missile thingie, like a Stinger. Sucker looks nearly intercontinental, like a SCUD. It would take a ship with a significant platform to launch it. A geek boat would look about like this after launching it!!

USS Reagan diverted to a position near a Carnival cruise ship "Splendor", to "facilitate the delivery of supplies needed".... Related? Do cruise ships have REALLY BIG flares?

I absolutely believe a missile took down that plane. But no, not at the Pentagon. I'm not a conspiratorialist.

There are no 2 ways about it. Thats a rocket fired from a submarine, ship or plane.

Personally I think a foreign power did it in an attempt to intimidate us. The idiot said our Navy might have done it to intimidate an Asian country makes no sense at all. The entire world has known that the USA has had sub launched ballistic nuclear missiles since the Polaris was first test fired from the USS George Washington July 20,1960. Why would we "demonstate" something we have been doing openly for 50 years and why would we choose to do it 35 miles from LA during rush hour?

Here are photos of real Delta 2 and Shuttle Endeavour launches from Cape Canaveral with my cell phone.
