Mystery object spotted over Whidbey Island

A weather camera picked up this peculiar anomaly on Sunday night and nobody can agree on what it is.
The object was photographed at 3:56am near a naval air station on Whidbey Island, Washington state.

"My night camera picked up what clearly looks like a very large missile launch from Whidbey Island," wrote Greg Johnson of Skunk Bay Weather who published the picture on Facebook.

"I really wanted more information before I shared this with the public."

Despite suggestions that the photograph shows a missile however, the naval air station on the island maintains that it doesn't actually have the ability to launch missiles of this size.

"There's a lot of speculation around here," said spokesman Tom Mills. "But it's definitely not a missile."

Neither Robert Lunsford of the American Meteor Society or Professor David Shultz of the University of Manchester's Center for Atmospheric Science believe that the photo shows a meteorological event.

So what could it be ?

I actually did read your posts and it was obvious you had no idea this area is crawling with missile-capable nuclear subs. Now you know.

I did know. I do know.  Just another effort on your part to cover up your foolish mistake.

Another example of your foolishness.

At least you're half-correct.  That's progress...

And your as foolish as ever.  So please get back to learning to read. It's a must in forum like this.

In the interests of correctness, and to prove I don't mind being wrong - this point was ill-thought out!  I was comparing a long exposure to a short daylight exposure.  So *if* it was a rocket launch, yes, it could have left a bright trail all the way.. All the other points still apply....

I countered your points..... Saying "all other points stand" is not a sufficient rebuttal. Those who "liked" this post.., feel free to jump in at anytime.

Ok, Fila. I think it's time to .. call. Assume for a microsecond (or for as long as you need), that I accept all your 'counters'.  Now  .. you go on ahead and provide us with an analysis and your conclusions / hypothesis / theory. Take as much time as you need, and do be careful to not stumble over anything (eg lack of knowledge), or forget to tell us your assumptions.. you know, be all sciency - ask your (alleged) uni supervisors if you need guidance... So here's your chance.  Take this one and run with it, and show us just how awesome you are, and answer the question on all of our lips - wha... [More]

I already explained how I contacted those in charge of the camera's.., who explained it was actually the last image for the night. This is why we don't see a 2nd image.., with a similar, but distant streak.

Wow.  Fabulous analysis.  I particularly liked the conclusions.
