Here are two views from the NAVWARN system that show where the missile came from, dropped stages, and was headed for -- nowhere near Kwaj?

According to that wiki page the missile is 37.3 million dollars...if that is true that is very disappointing...
Damn I am as broke as old Rome and they blow up 37.5 mil missile into space like that? Just to test? That's so messed up!

I'm really busy now but could somebody else go to google street view of this location and get a compass bearing on the missile direction, and estimate elevation angle? Thanks!

Why we have to be at war with on another makes no sense since regular citizens all over the world marry and have children with each other. They say we are a violent species but really we do love one another. It's sad we fight pointless wars and spend 100's of billions of dollars on it.

What i don't get is why all the pics and videos of this event show this thing to be flying horizontally and not upwards? Is that not what missiles do is fly upwards?

For a little while. But if the idea is to go someplace, they sort of have to turn in that direction.
Here's a launch from Vandenberg.

Our enemy would know a missile is coming there way because they would see pictures and videos go viral on the internet and social media. So they would be able to intercept it.

So this missile could hit Russia in 30 minutes after launch? 5194 miles / 18,030 mph

Fair question and it represents a common misimpression. After climbing out of the atmosphere's lower, thicker layers, both military missiles and space-bound rockets bend over towards horizontal to really pick up speed. Their ascent angles are a little different but not as you'd notice it from the ground.

Maybe. We're working on figuring out how to do that too.
It's not easy.

That's perfect. What compass azimuth does Google give for that highway? In other words what direction from LA was the missile?

Who knows how reliable this info is, but a friend of mine said this was a muscle flexing show for Russia. He said they violated our air space and this was our way of flipping them off. Personally I think the only reason our military would do this at 6pm on a Saturday night over LA is to show someone interested in our defense technology how capable it is and the whole world was witness. Quite a sales tactic.

Russia was supposed to have other detection systems, such as satellites in GEO orbit, or even just 12-hour Molniya orbiuts -- but since the collapse of the USSR, those satellites have broken down and not been replaced. They still have ground radar but they only pick up incoming missiles once they're halfway to target.

Were all of these tests the same thing?
