Missile launch? Lens flare? Mysterious object spotted over Navy base raises questions



WHIDBEY ISLAND, Wash. - It's time to get out that tinfoil hat.

A mysterious object was spotted by a local photographer over the skies of Whidbey Island early Sunday morning, leading to lots of speculation and questions, but no solid answers.

Greg Johnson of Skunk Bay Weather was looking through the pictures snapped by a weather camera on the Kitsap Peninsula when he spotted a photo with a mysterious object. The picture - snapped at 3:56 a.m. Sunday by a high-quality, 20-second exposure camera - shows a bright orange streak in the early morning sky over Whidbey Island.

Johnson told KCPQ he was hesitant to release the photo.

Mostly, because it appears to be a missile launched from Naval Air Station Whidbey Island.

"I feel strongly it was a missile launch," Johnson said.

But Tom Mills, a spokesperson for NAS Whidbey Island, said it wasn't a missile launch from the facility. There are no missile launch capabilities on the Navy base at Whidbey Island.

In fact, Navy workers are wondering what it was, too.

"There's a lot of speculation around here," Mills said, suggesting it could be lens flare. "But it's definitely not a missile launch."

2. Would depend on the distance between the lens and object I would suppose, but

I'm no camera/photo authority.

4. Indeed but that picture is quite convincing to me. The "feds" could have come up

with a more convincing lie, imo.

5. Pretty easy to make a convincing picture these days...



...thus why I stated that a lot more details need to be known before I'd believe it.

6. Just as easy as it is to make a lame excuse for denying the obvious that so many

other's except as legitimate, indeed.
