Social media went bananas when a large bright comet-shaped object with a blue-green-white tail streaked over Los Angeles and San Diego, sparking heated debate as to its origins. Sadly, again – no aliens, just a submarine missile.
The US Navy has confirmed that the mysterious “meteor” was a scheduled Trident II ballistic missile test flight. Cmdr. Ryan Perry of the Navy’s Third Fleet said in a statement that the rocket was launched from the Kentucky Ohio-class submarine in the Pacific Test Range off the coast of Southern California.
The test range in question is a large area off Point Mugu, Ventura County, northwest of Los Angeles. The Navy does not usually issue warnings or disclose the nature of their activities ahead of such tests, the spokesman said.
There was, however, a forced diversion of nighttime flights from Los Angeles Airport – the second-busiest in the US – due to unspecified “activated airspace” in the area, Reuters reported.
