Monday evening residents near Lost Angeles, California saw something strange shoot into the sky, leaving a squiggly, smoky tail in its path. Some wondered if it was a missile launch, but after local military didn't take responsibility for the mystery incident, questions remain. Experts have mused that it might have been merely a jet, seen departing from a strange angle, while others wondered if it was a ballistic launched from a submarine. What do you think? Take a look at the CBS News video and tell us your theory.
Gary Fowler, from Chandler, Okla. texted this:
Over 200 eye witnesses were told they were wrong when they said they saw a missile hit an airliner off the East Coast in the mid-90s, now it's the West Coast.
And a website reader asked:
Okay, saw the video, what is the object traveling perpendicular to the contrail? The big object traveling accross the sky on the right side of the screen. Was the missile a warning to that object or just a miss?
Your guess is as good as ours. So tell us: what is it?
