US missile test sparks UFO reports

Hundreds of witnesses reported seeing a large glowing multi-colored contrail across the Southwest.

TV stations across the region were inundated with calls from people who had observed the phenomenon, but far from being a sign of otherworldly visitors the contrails were actually the result of a ballistic missile test being conducted by the US military in New Mexico. The spectacle was enhanced by the rising sun which helped illuminate the unusual colors and trails in the sky.

"It's one of those things it does not happen every time - the weather and light conditions have to be just right, and this was one of those times," said an army spokesman. "We even had people calling from (Los Angeles) asking about it. They want to know about it. Apparently this thing really lit up the sky really well."

"The twisting cloudlike formation was visible in southern Colorado, Phoenix, Salt Lake City and Las Vegas just before sunrise, and led to hundreds of calls and emails to area TV stations."
