The description by Ian Houser on the YouTube video details the initial experience from those who literally watched the light in the sky over California as the missile test happened. The video’s update expresses doubt, as some Californians like Houser have taken to sharing, over the official explanation of the test firing.
“6pm 11/7/15. At San Onofre beach in southern California. Started as a fireball coming over the ocean, reflecting off the water and showing heat distortion. Explodes at :28 and spent the next five minutes as a glowing, expanding gas cloud radiating down to the surface. It left a blue cloud in the sky for 10 minutes. No sound during the explosion. It was in the sky for a lot longer than what’s shown here. Full video is 4 minutes : https://youtu.be/BzsTV_STlXQ
“Update: news is saying this was from Point Mugu, which isn’t possible. This originated miles off the west coast over the ocean and traveled upward and inland. It did explode over the coast near Mugu, so if anything Mugu shot it down. This video starts facing south west oriented to San Clemente island and by the time of explosion I was facing north west.”
Another video of the California missile test launch from RT, as seen below, is also gaining in views. The video shows just how brilliantly blue the missile streak appeared over the California sky, gaining plenty of eyeballs as folks wondered if they were witnessing a comet glowing across the skies over Los Angeles and San Diego. The missile that California residents mistook for a UFO was confirmed by the U.S. Navy as a Trident II ballistic missile test flight, not a meteor or comet. That hasn’t stopped folks tweeting about the California light on Twitter to call it otherwise.
