Looks like a stage separation.

The moon is scared of whats in the skies tonight, and is not out tonight

I just posted something about my thoughts on this missile test.
At first I thought it was a show of force towards China due to the rising conflicts in the southern seas these days...
but then I thought to myself:
"what if this was not only a regular missile test, but also.... something to keep SoCal and the southwestern states Distracted? like, just long enough to get an exotic bird up into the air while everyone is looking in the total opposite direction?"
Just a thought.
But man, I wish I was closer to R-5808. my and my scanner would have loved to intercept some chatter from the navy boys who launched this beautiful missile...
and see if we could pick up anything else that was flying tonight whilst LA was shut down

ok so this is it, but further from where i was... it was so close to where i was it took up the half of the sky from the beach...so this vid was shot 45 minutes south from me... can you see that the angle in this vid shows it was heading inland... from my angle, close to the object, you can clearly see the angle was northeast after the "seperation" occured.

No. And I think I'll go with the description from someone who understood what they were looking at.

basically it was so close to the shore the blue plume WAS over the beach and my hood less than 5 minutes after the object fell apart.. the wind carried it to the beach.. and it was not very high.. we have a new hotel here and the plume eventually got above the hotel

Here's a better video posted earlier...Can someone explain why it goes from a bright dot, then starts smoking, to a weird light show that creates this enormous haze and a blue streak. I know Phage is saying it's the exhaust being ionized but what sets it off in the first place? The weird light show part is very odd the shapes it makes and the way it's moving. What is going on and why can't they just make the missile a dud and it just falls to the ocean? Why have this bizarre scientific demonstration? Why not just an old fashion take the missile down test?

It is a dud and does fall into the ocean. It lands in the South Pacific near Kwajalein Atoll. The point of the test is to prove it can hit a target so they launch at the missile range near there.

My iPhone capture from Pasadena.

Naval testing it seems...

If it's a dud then it can just fall to the earth and not explode so why this over elaborate light show? Seems like an odd way to take down a missile. Why do they have to take down a missile in this particular procedure that causes the massive light show?

No missile was taken down.
This was a test of an submarine launched ballistic missle. It did exactly what it's supposed to do. The "light show" is what happens whenever a rocket reaches high altitudes shortly after sunset or before dawn, when the ground is dark but the rocket is in sunlight.


"It was a dud" means it was not carrying an armed warhead.

It wasn't a shoot down test. It was launched at the missile range in the South Pacific. The test was of the navigation and propulsion systems.

A lot of stuff going on on that rocket then to produce a variety of effects. If there is a link that explains exactly what is happening I would love to read it. Why would you want a missile to do that in war? Wouldn't you want your missile to remain as undetectable as possible till it hit it's target?

I suppose. Got any ideas on how to keep a rocket from emitting rocket exhaust? DARPA might be interested.

There's no way to hide an SLBM launch. The heat bloom is really obvious. They're not going to see all that though because they're being launched thousands of miles away.

This is EXACTLY why that guy Jacobs who saw a 'UFO' attack an Atlas missile in 1964 or so was told to forget about the film he had watched -- according to the team optical specialist, Jacobs actually saw a malfunction of the decoy deployment system that -- if the Soviets knew about it -- would enable them to separate the decoys from the warheads so as to concentrate their anti-missile fire on the real warheads. Obviously such a visual cue had to be kept top secret.

According to that wiki page the missile is 37.3 million dollars...if that is true that is very disappointing...

ETA: So we only see this "light show" because it's right after the launch? After that the missile travels much farther not making any clouds or con trails?

So this missile could hit Japan or Russia? The wiki page says it's range is almost 8000-12,000 km. So where will this missile end up?
