Mystery Missile

It was probably launched from Vandenberg Air force base in SoCal although they claim there was no launch from there and this report says it appeared to be sea launched (I don’t know how they could determine that from that contrail). If it was launched from Vandenberg, it is probably a spy satellite or maybe another one of those spy shuttles. Vandenberg is used for polar orbiting (north/south) satellites. A polar orbiting satellite will cover the whole Earth.

Probably a jet?
