It has been confirmed that claims of a strange light in the sky over the coast of California was not in fact a U.F.O. or a meteor shower, but rather a test launch of an unarmed nuclear missile by the U.S. Navy. The Trident II D5, a Lockheed-Martin corporation manufactured missile, has a range of more than 4,000 nautical miles and will travel at about 20,000 feet per second. The bright light is suggested to have been caused by a “staging event”, the process when one stage shuts down, is ejected, and the next stage ignites. Those who are preparing to capture the next launch on video may be disappointed, as times of test launches are classified information.
