Here's the odd part:
@ 5:17am PST a Victor Valley resident took a picture of the missile contrails.
VV Daly Press -
The White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico launched a 40-foot test missile at 6:30 a.m. Mountain Time in support of the Patriot Advanced Capability-3
program, according to facility spokeswoman Montie Marlen. PAC-3 is a missile defense program, developed to stop enemy missiles in the air.
Pacific vs Mountain time zones differ by 1 hour.
(5:17am PST) - (6:17am MT) = Missile photographed
(5:30am PST) - (6:30am MT) = Missile Launched
See the problem here?
Why did people report a flash?
In the High desert (Victor Valley) we see missile contrails from the launches from Vandenberg AFB. This makes sense within our distance, its
relatively close. But 500 miles away is a little odd.
I have seen plenty of Vandenberg AFB launches, guess what... No flash.
Anyone have any info about this launch?
