    That is my money. Does anyone really think the government would let us know if North Korea managed to sneak a sub to within 35 miles of the coast and launch a missile capable of holding a tactical nuke?

    Agreed, and with some of the close-ups, you can see the flame out the back of the rocket. With any jet, you only see that with fighters when they kick in the after-burners. I've seen dozens of launches from the Cape, and that was a rocket.

    Looks like the stumblin bumblin Obama Administration does not know how to handle this one. Hoping it will just go away.

    Would say that looks like semi-conclusive evidence for contrail. Especially the first two pictures in the lower link.

    (The good news is that the mystery is semi-solved. The bad news is that now it spoils all the wild ass speculation fun....)

    Its international waters. We cannot do anything without starting a war. We can mirror the sub if we know where it is and we cannot fire on it unless fired on.

    A missile would ascend too quickly to have the tail end of its trail fanned out like that, it takes time for the wind to disperse it that far.

    To give some perspective here.. the shuttle travels at roughly 25,000 feet per second to enter into a low earth orbit. Lets go with our unidentified missile/rocket as not being a low orbit launch and cut its speed heavily to 1/5 of that, so 5,000 feet per second (~mach 4.5 ). At that speed the object will have reached the upper limit of our stratosphere (~165,000 feet) in 30 seconds or so.. that is not much time at all for wind to work on the tail of the trail to cause it to be that dispersed

    How they ever spotted the UFO in this picture is beyond me, but thank goodness it's been circled so we can find it no problemo.

    Tonight at 10:00 PM PST at Coast to Coast I predict will have Richard C. Hogland live on the air creating some wild speculation we never thought of.

    It will be a sign from out there or a special test of some super secret new weapon.

    I doubt seriously that N. Korea would set on a story that would show their new nuclear abilities.

    I also find it very curious that the Navy could have Launched it and not know it. If you fire a missile off of any ship, everyone on that ship is going to know it instantly without fail every time.

    Damn, I almost forgot there for a minute, time to forget everything you've heard about what it is up to now, it's the Obama era, that can only mean, President George W. Bush did it. Game over.

    I've seen a lot of vertical launches of jet fighters in my years as a weapons loader and I say it could be from a fighter jet.

    Yep it's Obama's fault! Jeeze don't you people ever get off the partisan hack schtick? When you say crap like that you lose all credibility, not that you had much before.
