From the looks of the picture the ship that launched it could have been out on the ocean, below the horizon. It is very hard to judge the scale in the picture

It could be. Photos can be deceiving. Maybe better data will arrive at some point.

QANON made a reference to a missile launch and something about Red October [submarine] and Fox 3 which is a NATO term for launching a missile. I thought I would toss this out there as this base is on the other side of the Bay. #1 storage facility of USA Nukes. Reporters also asked one Naval Base if they launched but I don't believe they asked this base:

TNearly one-quarter of America's 9,962 nuclear weapons are now assigned to the Bangor submarine base on Hood Canal, 20 air miles northwest of downtown Seattle.ext

Fox 3 which us naval term for launching a missile
No. Not a naval term. It is the NATO brevity code term for the launch of an active radar guided air-to-air missile, as opposed to Fox 1 for a semi-active radar guided missile and Fox 2 for a infrared homing missile. All air-to-air.

As pointed out Fox 3 has nothing to do with ships. And the base you're talking about doesn't have launch capability. The warheads they have are loaded onto SLBMs that get loaded onto subs that can launch them.

So it's more of a web cam setup looking to the N - NE, Not even toward the pacific. Most likely has a fairly short focal length lens.

So according to the link provided by phage their was a helicopter in the line of site of the camera at the time of the pic.

Some times something moving toward a camera looks like it is rising vertical.

Remember, IIRC, the 'missile' off LA that was believed to actually be a Fed Ex cargo flight heading into LAX.

The helicopter flying away through the space seems like the most reasonable cause.

Guys, look at Whidbey Island on a map.

There is no missile range, the pacific ocean is probably 80 miles in the other direction, there is a huge amount of commercial shipping and air traffic and the entire area is highly populated.

Whatever it is its not an SM-3 test.

Some of you guys need to learn PAO speak. IF this is real, the Public Affairs officer told the absolute truth. There are no capabilites to launch a missile like that on the base. He didn't say a word about anything off the base, such as a ship just off the coast, outside the base.


The problem here though is in addition to the base spokesperson, the Navy west coast spokesman said no ships in area.

Source

Scott Sistek at KOMO TV says that they contacted the Navy about it yesterday. The Whidbey NAS spokesperson says they don’t have missile launch facilities there; Navy west coast spokesman said no ships in area.


Should we read into the possibility of sub launched then since submarines are boats and not ships?

Skunk Bay camera is red circle.
Base is the blue circle.

Which, again, would be absolutely correct if this was a test of a Japanese or Korean ship that just got upgraded.

It might be related to this DoD Navy contract from fiscal year 2017 -


Bethel-Webcor JV-1,* Anchorage, Alaska, is being awarded $23,698,000 for firm-fixed-price task order N4425517F4132 under a multiple award construction contract (N44255-17-D-4032) for design and construction of the Triton Mission Control Facility at Naval Air Station Whidbey Island (NASWI). The work to be performed provides for all labor, materials, equipment, and associated costs to demolish the existing Building #243, and construct a one-story Triton Mission Control Facility. The scope of this project also includes a broad area marine surveillance earth station antenna site on NASWI’s north quadrant, emergency generator, electrical utilities, paving, and site improvements. Work will be performed in Oak Harbor, Washington, and is expected to be completed by April 2020. Fiscal 2017 military construction (Navy) contract funds in the amount of $23,698,000 are obligated on this award and will not expire at the end of the current fiscal year. Thirteen proposals were received for this task order. The Naval Facilities Engineering Command, Northwest, Silverdale, Washington, is the contracting activity. [e/x]

i think the color of the light is much like the sun.

i do not think rocket during the day would look like that?


Yeah, I'm thinking it is an airliner higher up, and the rising sun is illuminating the contrail, because if it was a rocket or missile burning it's fuel, the flames from the burning of fuel would never stay burning that far down.

And it is just an illusion that it's going up.

The Triton is the naval version of the RQ-4 Global Hawk. It's a UAV, and isn't related to missiles.

Honest question here, most of the SM series have boosters on them right?

granted it is a time lapse photo but i would assume that the boosters smoke trail would be visible or is it the cloud making the rocket visible and the lack of a smoke trail from the booster is just a distance thing?


could this have something to do with the new super sonic missile test that just happened?
