I don't know what it was yet.
Here it be. 2 pics





Took these pictures just down the street. Looks like a test launch to me.

Ok, back to my show. American Pickers. I just wanted to share with you all. Doing my job for us from here. You guys have a great night!

The riddler is back in town. Tried to make a question mark in the sky in celebration?

Or, alternatively perhaps high altitude swamp gas?

No idea really, but it's fascinating.

Seen 2-3 reports about a bright white orb over the last 48 hours in various areas above the US.

Some kind of coordinated test seems more likely than an offworldly explanation for this.

I hope we get an explanation. Something flew over my home this morning on the east coast that was being followed by a helicopter. It had a very strange noise, it reminded me of low flying V22 props, but it didn't have a down pitch, like a perpetual up-pitch prop. Weird. Didn't see it, only heard it, vibrated the neighborhood. I wonder if it's related.

Good catch VBT


Looks like it did a complete circle in this pic off the web. Missile test?

It was a meteor caught on dashcam:
Meteor video
I saw it down in So Cal as I waited for the Delta Heavy launch (scrubbed).

It’s weird because I saw something really weird in the sky north of San Francisco today. It was like a big clear rippling bubble moving across the sky, don’t know if that is any relation or not.

It's not a missile. It happened during the scheduled launch of a Delta-IV Heavy from Vandenberg. They scrubbed due to a hydrogen leak, but they wouldn't be firing missiles during the launch window.

News reports are saying that what seen was actually a “test rocket” launched prior to the Delta Heavy: the Delta launch has subsequently been postponed.

Thing is, I don’t recall them ever doing a “test launch” prior to any other announced launch.

I know that we used to send up a “test balloon” prior to some of our rockoon launches, to determine wind speed/direction.

But a test rocket? No way.

It sure does look like one in that video and Zap points out it would not be a missile test. So it must be a UFO

My maths is not all that good as Phage will attest. But something doesn't quite seem right. I am probably wrong here (getting old).

From another thread:


The launch of the Delta IV Heavy has been canceled again. This is the fourth time in two weeks it has been scrubbed.

It was scheduled to launch from the Vandenberg Air Force at 5:59 p.m. Wednesday.

The United Launch Alliance says they will attempt the launch December 20th at 5:31 p.m.

A hydrogen leak in one engine halted the launch from Vandenberg Air Force Base Wednesday evening less than 10 minutes before liftoff.

Launches from the base northwest of Los Angeles can light up the sky for hundreds of miles.

The launch also was scrubbed Tuesday because of high winds and on Dec. 7 and Dec. 8 because of technical problems.

I'm in Oz so time differences snd all that. It is now noon 20th December my time and Oz is ahead of the US.

Shouldn't the launch be in about four five hours my time?


Afterthought: VBT is perhaps suspiciously nonchalant?

(evil grin) It might be fun to imagine that "someone" might not want that rocket launch to go ahead and is running rings around the US military.

Wasn't there a rocket blowing up on the launch pad with videos showing a little silver thing flying past just before kaboom?

It's currently 8:24 PST the 19th. The launch attempt was a little over 2 1/2 hours ago. The next launch attempt is at 5:31 PST tomorrow.

Thanks Zaphod, but if the launch didn't happen, what is the lights in the sky?

Sure as hell does not look like a meteor trail

A meteor or something high enough to be leaving a trail that's still in sunlight.

Ahh, okay. Probably a good thing the didn't launch then.

They have range safety aircraft and aircraft that film the launch. It could have been one of them.
