Mystery Missile Explanation
SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA - It turns out that mystery launch across the skies of Southern California may have been a plane.
Video from KCBS shows an object flying through the evening sky on Monday that left a large vapor trail.
But while the vapor cloud resembles one created by a rocket in flight, military leaders say they were unaware of any launches in the area and cannot explain it.
One expert has called it an optical illusion, saying it is an airplane heqding toward the camera and the contrail is illuminated by the sun.
