Mystery Missile Launch Off California Coast

Everyone is talking about it, no one knows what's going on.

A mysterious missile launch off the southern California coast was caught by CBS affiliate KCBS's cameras Monday night, and officials are staying tight-lipped over the nature of the projectile.

CBS station KFMB put in calls to the Navy and Air Force Monday night about the striking launch off the coast of Los Angeles, which was easily visible from the coast, but the military has said nothing about the launch.

KFMB showed video of the apparent missile to former U.S. Ambassador to NATO Robert Ellsworth, who is also a former Deputy Secretary of Defense, to get his thoughts.

"It's spectacular… It takes people's breath away," said Ellsworth, calling the projectile, "a big missile".

The Air Force and Navy say they don't know anything about it which is not very comforting.

Fearless prediction...no matter what the truth, the delays in any information will lead to awesome conspiracy theories. Who knows, one of them might even be true.

Added: Cuffy has some context on the location and word from the ballistic defense folks that it wasn't one of theirs.

is trying to track down info from NORAD and other sources, so far, nothing.
