I was wondering why there were so few witnesses to the "meteor" activity. There are usually plenty of sightings over a large area, not to mention
photos and videos. With this, nothing...just a handful of eye-witnesses.
I looked a map of population density. Remember how I keep mentioning that the sightings were all along a line? Well, if you keep following that line,
it has regions of high population density on either side of it (most notably Dallas and Austin), but it never runs through anything but low population
density areas. The objects in the sky followed a very fortunate corridor through which there were less people to witness anything.
Also, meteors are seen over large areas because they're extremely high. A missile, on the other hand, would be lower for at least part of its
journey... low enough to only be seen along a thin line, which just happens to run through sparsely populated areas.
With that in mind, I've been trying to fit the missile theory to what happened that night. To do that, I had to assume that the sighting at 9:28 was
actually at about 10:28. Here's what I've got (note that this is only speculative, just to see if it's feasible):
10:25 pm CDT +/-3 mins
- Missile launched toward Camp Minden (from the west… Gulf of California?), described as "red/fireball/meteor" with trail as it descends toward
- Interceptor launched from Ft. Bliss, described as "white" with no trail, heard over home in Longview
- Missile destroyed near target
11:15 pm CDT +/- 5 mins
- Second missile fired toward Camp Minden, described as "fireball" (from different direction? Gulf of Mexico?)
- Possible malfunction, crashing off Goodwill Road to the northwest of Camp Minden target
11:27 pm CDT +/- 1 min
- Third missile reaches Camp Minden target unseen (from different direction? Gulf of Mexico?)
- Two resultant explosions: initial detonation, followed by ignition of stored munitions 10 secs later
I would actually hazard a guess that the first missile launched from the west would have been strategic, in order to draw the attention of the
interceptors at Ft. Bliss while the legitimate attack came from the Gulf of Mexico.
