Mystery Missile Launch Off the Coast of LA

A rather large sea-launched missile punched through the sunset haze around 35 miles off the coast of Los Angeles, north of Catalina Island Monday evening, but neither the Navy nor the Pentagon admits to knowing where it came from.

Mysterious sea-launched missile caught by a local TV news helicopter near sundown November 8, 2010.

Being so far at sea, it's unlikely to have been an amateur rocket launch. Former U.S. Ambassador to NATO and former U.S. Deputy Secretary of Defense Robert Ellsworth conjectured, "It could be a test-firing of an intercontinental ballistic missile from a submarine . . . to demonstrate, mainly to Asia, that we can do that." (President Obama was in Asia at the time).

Daryl's Take...

"Meandering ruminations, shared for the benefit of those who probably need to get out more."
