    Mystery Missile Launch off California Coast

    (CBS) 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.

    Scroll down for KFMB video showing the launch.

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

    Saw this in the news this morning before going to work. Who shot this off is what I would like to know.

    Looks like our sub test of an SLCBM. Vandenberg is our test center.

    Re: Mystery Missile Launch off California Coast

    I think this is very strange and kinda frightening as well.

    Lets see, the Pres and his party just got their ***** handed to them in the recent election. Pelosi refuses to step down. The Fed announces radical changes to "boost the economy" just days after the elections and after months of propping up the system and spending trillions in buyouts to keep the banks from failing. Now the Pres is in India and while out of the country and ICBM of unknown origin is launched from outside LA at rush hour? And the government doesn't say or do anything? What? This is the same government who calls out Homeland Security, the FBI, the CIA, the DEA, and the Special Forces to arrest and waterboard anyone who takes more than 2 ounces of shampoo aboard an airplane? Can't wait until the conspiracy theorists get ahold of this one.

    Do not forget the banning of the 16 ounce printer ink cartridges.

    It was probably (99.999%) just a military test.

    And your crazy. Most of what you said in this post is completely factually wrong. I would probably be frightened to if I was as confused as you are about basic Gov't principles and the roles of the Homeland Security, FBI, CIA, DEA, Special Forces, etc.

    Re: Mystery Missile Launch off California Coast

    As crazy as Rickybaby sounds, why hasn't the military said what this is yet? All I have read from the Navy/Air Force/Pentagon is that "we don't know what it is, but don't worry, it's not dangerous."

    I agree that it's very likely a military test, but it's one hell of a test I'd say.
