    http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/myste...ry?id=12097155

    What do you mean you don't know if it's one of ours?

    It could only be one of ours or one of theirs. There were no NOTAMS (notice to airmen) warning planes to stay out of the area due to a launch. It was at 5pm, the time that there are the most people outdoors to observe it. It was definately an ICBM. My guess would be someone is trying to warn us

    We regularly hold sea drills with live fire with aircraft carriers, subs and other Naval vessels,with other countries. in the Sea of Japan, South China Sea and the Yellow Sea.

    This isnt too much to worry about. We own the sea, and China would become a burned cinder if they attacked us. They dont have much of a blue water navy.

    Remember April 2001 when they knocked down our E3 patrol aircraft and held the crew for 10 days?

    Read this link, it explains somewhat

    In the article noted in the first post... there is reference (unless my brain is mis-reading things) that local ATC radar did NOT have any spotting of the missile. So if it was indeed launched, seems the local radar would have a record of it... Unless it did not really happen...

    I wonder if this is a media stunt? Sure produced headlines...

    Looks like a very possible hoax to me. Just because nobody else saw it from what I read. No pilots, ships, radars. Looks like someone else would have seen something.

    Could be a big mistake that the govt is trying to cover up.

    One of the reports I read on another site said it was an optical illusion caused by the sitting sun and a regular jet.

    The Navy is doing drills in that area right now. No one has been screaming about the US being raised to Defcon anything. I haven't had any unusual air traffic from the Air Force base in my area.

    And if they only take out California, well I'll still be ok.
