    Question Mystery Missile Launch Seen off Calif. Coast

    (CBS) A mysterious missile launch off the southern California coast was caught by CBS affiliate KCBS's cameras Monday night, and officials are staying tight-lipped over the nature of the projectile.

    CBS station KFMB put in calls to the Navy and Air Force Monday night about the striking launch off the coast of Los Angeles, which was easily visible from the coast, but the military has said nothing about the launch.

    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.

    Scroll down for KFMB video showing the launch.

    "It's spectacular… It takes people's breath away," said Ellsworth, calling the projectile, "a big missile".

    Magnificent images were captured by the KCBS news helicopter in L.A. around sunset Monday evening. The location of the missile was about 35 miles out to sea, west of L.A. and north of Catalina Island.

    A Navy spokesperson told KFMB it wasn't their missile. He said there was no Navy activity reported in the area Monday evening.

    On Friday night, Vandenberg Air Force Base, in California, launched a Delta II rocket, carrying an Italian satellite into orbit, but a sergeant at the base told KFMB there had been no launches since then.

    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

    No one knows who the hell fired it. 35 miles off shore means only one thing could have fired it, a sub. Who's we are yet to find out. Could it be a show of force and military might by our bumbling leader for some hairball reason? Or is it another nation letting us know that they can get close enough and have the means to attack our shores?

    You do realize where the Indian ocean is dont you?

    And if you do, just why do you think the US might have 34 warships and an aircraft carrier in the region?

    Just a hint it is not to protect Obama on a trip to India, and Indonesia

    Testing the missile shield is not a show of force or a hairball reason. You cannot be suggesting that the US fired an ICBM just to show that we have them, right?

    It's either missile shield, or aliens escaping and now we're gonna get busted for the space cash.

    Or maybe North Korea!

    Jesus. People never launch privately owned fireworks/rockets from their backyards.

    Or do they... one TV Station calls it a missile and you all run with it. Can it be confirmed that its a "Missile" or did some guy build a rocket in his backyard?

    THIS IS OBAMAS DOING! If those 34 warships were there they would have stopped the "missile" that did no damage!!!!!!

    That's pretty messed up, I bet a lot of people thought it was time to find a fall out shelter.

    Dude chill.

    ICBM's and the like are very very different from model rockets.
    In size, scope and range.

    Re: Mystery Missile Launch Seen off Calif. Coast

    From what I just watched on FOX TV, KCAL-9 Los Angles and what I have heard on KFI, L.A. and KFMB, San Diego, according to all reports from Vandenberg, A.F.B. The NAVY, and NORAD, this never happened, they have no idea what might have happened or it wasn't them.

    Pick as answer they gave them all.

    Shortly after 9:00 pm last night something burning blue white fell out of the sky west of my location near Hemet,in Riverside County at hundreds of miles an hour.
