There are 200+ witnesses that report seeing a launch that night. I
The Witness Group noted that documents pertaining to 38 witnesses described a streak of light ascending vertically, or nearly so, and that these accounts seem to be inconsistent with the accident airplanes calculated flightpath. The Board recognizes that, in addition to these reports, 18 witnesses reported seeing a streak of light that originated at the surface or from the horizon, which also does not appear to be consistent with the airplanes calculated flightpath and other known aspects of the accident sequence.
Investigators determined that if witnesses had observed an actual missile attack on TWA flight 800 (beginning about the time that an airborne missile would have become visible to the time that the wreckage from TWA flight 800 fell into the ocean), they would have seen the following: (1) a light (the burning of the missile motor) ascending very rapidly and steeply for about 8 seconds (this rapidly moving light, which would have been visible for at least 12 nm575 from the launch point, would not descend like a firework or flare); (2) the light disappearing576 for up to about 7 seconds;577 (3) upon a missile (or warhead fragment) striking the airplane and igniting the fuel/air vapor in the CWT, another light (flames coming from the CWT), moving considerably slower and more laterally than the first light (although ascending somewhat for a short time), for about 30 seconds; (4) this light descending while simultaneously developing into a fireball falling toward the ocean. It is noteworthy that none of the witness documents included a description of such a scenario.
Therefore, the Safety Board concludes that the witness observations of a streak of light were not related to a missile and that the streak of light reported by most of these witnesses was burning fuel from the accident airplane in crippled flight during some portion of the postexplosion, preimpact breakup sequence.578 The Board further concludes that the witnesses observations of one or more fireballs were of the airplanes burning wreckage falling toward the ocean.
I think it would be impossible to make an animation that matched 200 different eyewitness accounts. It's pretty well known that witnesses don't all see and recall the same thing even when watching the same event.

Two is not a lot but the government singled out these guys and then lied about what they reported to fit their explanation. I'm not saying it was def a missle I just found it interesting that they changed eyewitness testimony for the animation.
But suddenly, a 747 gets hit by one, and immediately explodes into 5 pieces and crashes in flames? Say what? Does that make any sense to anyone?
