Mysterious I-ram page a and broadcast live, eliciting gasps of astonishment from the anchor crew. Before the object was out of sight and the contrail dissipated, speculation began over .lust ex- actly what the object--a debate that continues to this day. Both the Navy and Air Force immediately (and somewhat surpris ingly) insisted they had no connection with the object, stating that they were not Performing any military operations in the area at the time. Likewise, the North American Air DeIbnse Command--whose job it is to make sure all such activities are monitored---claimed that the craft was not the result of any ac- tivity by anyone's military, includ ing ours. On the tamer side of the specu- lation bruhaha, a number of people of the skeptical persuasion declared the object was likely no more than an airliner departing LAX on its way across the Pacific, an idea that was quickly shot down the next day by Doug Richardson, editor of .lane's Missiles and Rockets In a report trom The Times of Jim Watson Columnist London, Richardson de- clared that he had little doubt what the object was: "It's a solid pro pellant missile," he said. "You can tell from the efliux (smoke)." Richardson went on to say it could have been either a ballistic inissile Im]netfed rom a snbma rine or perhaps a delen- sive anti-missile weapon. Since the event occurred at the same moment that President Bar- rack Obama happened to be on a trip to the Far East, speculation immediately turned to the no- tion that the obieet was a Chinese missile brazenly launched off our most populous section of our West Coast as an embarrassment---or perhaps threat. Despite the high profile nature of the event and the fact that it oc- curred in such close proximity to major civilian and military track- ing installations, no consensus was ever reached as to lust exactly what the object was. All sides are stick ing to their stories and no similar event has occurred since (thereby arguing against the airliner theo ry). While the origin of the mystery missile remains unknown, we do know that its ultimate destination was that shadowy-bound volume of mysteries that makes up Catali- na's "Twilight Zone."
