First, it was an unidentified projectile shooting skyward from San Diego, Ca. The news media are tying to placate people's fears by telling us that it was an airplane leaving a contrail. Excuse me, but when do airplanes take off into the sky at such a steep angle?
Now, it's an unidentified streak of fire across the NYC skyline. An astronomer says this, too, is an airplane's contrail. I don't know about this one either, because contrails I've seen stretched halfway across the open sky. This one looks too short to be a contrail.
I think there's a government cover-up as to what these two unidentified flying objects were. Call me nuts, but if we are being visited by extraterrestrials, I'd like to know. If we're being attacked by terrorists, I'd like to know that, too.
*Edit: One of the bloggers I read, who lives near Luke AFB, which is east of the San Diego contrail, took pictures of it and blogged about it. She said the unidentified object came from the west and then went straight up in the air after heading east for a bit, and it kept going straight up. So, no frickin' way that thing was a jet airliner.
**Edit: News story has it that it was a Chinese missile launched from a Chinese submarine.
