Recently here at the Gralien Report, I’ve been making frequent references to “Ghost Rockets,” a term first used to describe mystery aircraft seen during World War II. Granted, there is a curious lineage of UFO-related reports since that time which involve rocket and missile-like craft seen in various parts of the world (for more on this subject, click here). That said, in spite of the fact that “Ghost Rockets” in the traditional sense don’t always resemble projectiles, I was a bit amazed nonetheless when I came across this report earlier today. According to news sources in Southern California, an “unexplained missile” was apparently fired from along the coast near Los Angeles Monday evening. At present, the identity of object in question–as well as who may have fired it–both remain a mystery.
What is known of the incident, for now, is as follows: a CBS News traffic helicopter in the area managed to capture footage of the projectile, which Navy and Pentagon spokesmen have been unable to identify, nor have they claimed responsibility for it in any official statements released today. AOL News reported that an NBC Pentagon correspondent, Jim Miklaszewski, said the following of the incident: “This is bizarre.” Similarly, Robert Ellsworth, a former deputy Secretary of Defense, also commented on the missile, saying that “It is spectacular. It takes people’s breath away,” noting it could likely be “a test firing of an intercontinental ballistic missile from a submarine,” for purposes of displaying a bit of “military muscle” to countries like China. But the question remains… who launched it?
