The mystery missile is apparently no mystery, according to NASA and The Pentagon. The missile was seen â€œstreaking into the skiesâ€ right above Southern California. However, the mystery missile is now being called an airliner.
The possible missile streaking across the sky occurred Monday evening and was captured by a television news helicopter. It created a buzz, all across the Internet and television. However, other governments have been contacted, and they deny having launched a missile at America. Do countries seriously admit that they launched a missile at another country? Do we take an enemy country at their word?
Col. Dave Lapan, the Defense Departmentâ€™s spokesman, explained that the â€œmystery missileâ€ was actually â€œan airplane contrail distorted by camera angle, winds and other environmental factors including a setting sun.â€
Al Bowers is an â€œassociate director of research at NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center in the Mojave Desert.â€ He explained, â€œA missile would look like that. It could potentially have a contrail that shape. (But) the motion looks a little suspect to me, and my conclusion would be that, yeah, it's most probably an aircraft.â€
So, there you have the â€œmystery missileâ€ was most likely just an airplane that looked distorted from the winds, sun and the cameraâ€™s angle. Or, is the government trying to cover up a potential attack? Why would the cameraman have taken a picture of an airplaneâ€™s contrail? Was he bored?
Even though, The Pentagon and NASA have chimed in on the â€œmystery missile.â€ This will not go away this easily. Hopefully, the federal government is correct, and America was not being attacked, but it seems suspicious, doesnâ€™t it?
