788 - That "missile launch" nonsense was debunked long ago. Give it up.

Maybe you need to see it in pictures

I clearly saw it from the 154/Calle Real intersection. So bright!

Chinese Rocket Flashes Across Sky

Well, we're making progress - we've finally accepted the fact that the Chinese government does have modern missile technology, and also that the US government does not control everything we see in the sky.

Now all we need to do is admit that the "airliner from Hawaii" video that went viral back in 2010 was actually a missile launched from a submarine 20 or 30 miles west of LA. (The "tell" that the "contrail" was in fact a missile exhaust plume is that the video was shot at high altitude, and you can clearly see that the plume emerges from a point in the ocean midway between the horizon and the foreground - unless someone wants to pretend there are a jet powered sea plane/airliners...)

I live at the top of Hope Ave. and just by chance I was looking out my window at San Marcos Pass and the thing streaked by moving from southwest to northeast at low altitude and then it disappeared behind the SY mts. It moved very slowly and looked like a large whitish orange comet. I had a visual on it for probably 5 seconds. It was so freaky I ran outside and was expecting an impact flash from behind the mountains. Good to know what it was.

Amazing how quickly photos or even well shot video can do to put aside speculation and conjecture about unusual events. From the photo it's immediately evident what this was (not that it was a Chinese launcher but space debris).

This also amplifies the connundrum that criminal investigators have with eye witness accounts or the ability of eye witnesses to accurately describe events in question. Great fun!

Grocery Workers Ask Community to Bo...

Unions are ridicolous. These people know the jobs they apply for when looking for work. They accept the pay level and then later they complain about it. The hypocrisy kills me. Open your eyes people. If you don't like it leave and find a job somewhere else, there are people lined up to take the job you don't want.

More details on the rocket body here

That +/- 9 hours of uncertainty in when it was coming down is what let us see it, compared to the map you see there.

MACPUZL got it right. "Jonathan McDowell, an astronomer at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics in Cambridge, Mass., told The Times that the fireball was debris from a Chinese rocket launched June 25." [LA Times, 7-28-2016]

It sounds like this was a Chinese rocket body from a launch on June 25. The red light I saw was probably a reflection in my glasses from the red LED lights we use to mark our telescope tripod legs so people don't trip on them.

The radiant of Delta Aquarids was to the SSE at the time of this incident, so any meteors from that shower would have been travelling in nearly the opposite direction.

Speaking of meteors, the Perseid shower, coming up on Aug 11/12/13, might be pretty good this year.
