SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA - Government investigators are examining video of what appears to be a missile that launched off the Southern California coast.
CBS station KCBS in Los Angeles shot the video.
It appears the object was launched just north of Catalina Island.
The pentagon has no clear explanation of who launched the object or even if it is a missile.
The FAA says it had not approved any commercial space launches in that area.
NORAD says it is aware of the event and has confirmed there is no indication of a threat to the U.S.
The Pentagon says it is not alarmed about the launch until the agency knows more.
