The Infallible Military leaders might as well just say;
‘Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and refracted the light from Venus.’
Initial reports from this morning, stated that it might have been a Missile launch off the coast of California Monday Evening, although NORAD, the Pentagon and other Officials remained relatively quiet on what it was, except that they did not pick up any such launch on their systems. (Making a mention of Tomahawk missiles and how the vapor trail of the mystery is too large, failing in this report to highlight that ICBM Trident Missiles have a similar Vapor trail to what we see in the video).
As of sometime after 12pm today, (11/10/2010), Officials are stating it is an airliner and not a missile; however this line seems to be coming only from top military and government officials, while everyone else is concerned that that is not necessarily the case.
The one thing I have yet to see or hear anyone relate to us is, showing the many videos of ICBM missile launches to compare the Vapor trails and or recounting any previous reports of vapor trails such that resemble this current one, if it is really an Airplane or Airliner Vapor Contrail.
The question is begged, if this is an Airplane, this event would be common for planes coming into and out of LAX and would happen on a regular basis, (or for any airport in the U.S. for that matter). Is this a common event? And if so why would seasoned news reporters report it as an unknown factor, assuming that it could be a missile?
I have watched many a plane fly overhead, take off and land at airports; I live by two major airports, both of which are near a large body of water, (O’Hare Int’l Airport and Midway Airport, both near Lake Michigan), and during parts of the year the Chicago, IL area has similar conditions that would be found by L.A., and I have yet to see any vapor contrails look like the one in the Nov. 8 2010 L.A. video below:
The U.S. Military has in the past had test missiles launched to show military might against the Soviets during the cold war.
As excerpted from CBS; Former U.S. NATO Ambassador Robert Ellsworth Explains:
“KFMB showed video of the apparent missile to former U.S. Ambassador to NATO Robert Ellsworth, who is also a former Deputy Secretary of Defense, to get his thoughts.
…"It's spectacular… It takes people's breath away," said Ellsworth, calling the projectile, "a big missile"…
Ellsworth urged American to wait for definitive answers to come from the military.
When asked, however, what he thought it might be, the former ambassador said it could possibly have been a missile test timed as a demonstration of American military might as President Obama tours Asia.
"It could be a test-firing of an intercontinental ballistic missile from a submarine … to demonstrate, mainly to Asia, that we can do that," speculated Ellsworth.
Ellsworth said such tests were carried out in the Atlantic to demonstrate America's power to the Soviets, when there was a Soviet Union, but he doesn't believe an ICBM has previously been tested by the U.S. over the Pacific.”
NOTAM had put out a warning to pilots to stay clear of the area where the mystery missile occurred:
NOTAM for LA.
KZLA LOS ANGELES A2832/10
– THE FOLLOWING RESTRICTIONS ARE REQUIRED DUE TO NAVAL AIR WARFARE CENTER WEAPONS DIVISION ACTIVATION OF W537. IN THE INTEREST OF SAFETY, ALL NON-PARTICIPATING PILOTS ARE ADVISED TO AVOID W537. IFR TRAFFIC UNDER ATC JURISDICTION SHOULD ANTICIPATE CLEARANCE AROUND W537 AND CAE 1176. CAE 1155 WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE FOR OCEANIC TRANSITION. CAE 1316 & CAE 1318 WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE FOR OCEANIC TRANSITION. CAE 1177 WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR OCEANIC TRANSITION. W537 ACTIVE, CAE 1176 CLOSED. SURFACE – FL390, 09 NOV 20:00 2010 UNTIL 10 NOV 01:00 2010. CREATED: 08 NOV 20:52 2010
As seen here and here.
NOTAM report A2832/10 is missing from the KZLA notice list on NOTAM’s website: (You can go to https://www.notams.jcs.mil/dinsQueryWeb/ and scroll to the bottom and click on KZLA and then Click on view notices to see all the notices).
There is a new notice for Nov 15th-16th 2010, with similar warnings as the above noticed.
*Although The date stamp for the original notice don’t seem to match up with the Monday evening ‘launch’, people are reading them as local time and all NOTAM is released in GMT Zulu; which for L.A. would be there Local time -8:00. Of course it is always possible that the report time was modified, and as it can no longer be found in the notices on their website; this gives more credence to a cover-up.*
What is NOTAM, You ask? It is a quasi-acronym for a "Notice To Airmen".
Here is another limited known fact; Submarines and also their missile launches are harder, (though not impossible), to detect during Geomagnetic storms. But Space Weather.com shows for Nov. 8th 2010 B-Class flares and Geomagnetic storms are shown for Mid-Latitudes to be a probability of only 10 % (K4 or Less Active type storm), for Nov.8 2010.
Their main page article titled "MYSTERY MISSILE" LAUNCH: for Nov. 10 2010, expresses they are an authority on mis-identified contrails, but have fallen in step with the rest of the Bureaucrats and Officials and said that they are unsure what it is.
So a Geomagnetic storm may or may not have had any real effect in the supposed lack of awareness by our Defense Departments.
In the end, if it is an Airplane, I guess we will have to re-evaluate our years of understanding on Vapor trails. If it really is a missile, then we are going to be force served whatever it is they want us to swallow.
But whatever is going on, it suspiciously occurred as President Obama visits asia, (8 days, 4 in China); just like the “coincidence’ that Bombs were found on planes heading for the U.S. right before the Mid-term Elections.
ICBM missiles being fired; notice the similarity in the vapor trails including the concentric ripples caused by the Missiles spinning to adjust trajectory, (called Roll Maneuvers).
