Default Mystery Missile Fired Off of California Coast

Don't know who caught this, or if there's been any update on it:

I seem to recall something similar happening over Newfoundland last year-ish.

Update, From Fox:

Quote:
Col. Dave Lapan, a Pentagon spokesman, told reporters the video is so far "unexplained" by anyone in the U.S. Military.

The Missile Defense Agency told Fox News it did not launch any test missile last night that could explain the dramatic images. The Navy and the Air Force were also unable to offer an explanation.

"It does not appear that this was a regularly scheduled missile test", Lapan said. Before a missile test the military sends notifications to mariners, airmen, and air traffic controllers to stay clear of the area, and according to Lapan it doesn't appear those warnings were sent.

The FAA told Fox News it did not issue any license for a commercial launch. NASA also denied any involvement and said it is checking for any meteorite activity, although it's highly unlikely that is the source of these images.

John Cornelio, a spokesman for Northern Command and NORAD (North American Aerospace Defense Command) told Fox News Tuesday there is no threat to the homeland. "We are very confident this was not fired from a foreign military," Cornelio said. "That's not what we are working with."

Cornelio also cautioned the use of the term missile, saying that word suggests the launch of a weapon, which can't be confirmed.

"If it was an attack we would have known it and we would have done something about it," Cornelio said.

At this point the military is working only with video taken from the KCBS news camera.

It appears from the video, Lapan said, the object was launched from the water and not U.S. soil, although he cant be certain.

If a test missile or an accidental missile was launched in the region it would have either come from Naval Air Station Point Mugu or Vandenberg Air Force Base. At sea it could have come from a U.S. submarine or a surface ship. But so far, it all remains a mystery.
