((NUFORC Note: Report of missile launch from Vandenberg AFB. PD))Something that looked like a rocket, very bright, flying into the sky and then disappearing.My friends and I were on a road trip to San Diego, and right before we got to Yuma, there was a very bright light flying into the sky. We saw it come from behind a mountain, and it flew upwards in a straight line. It got very bright and there was an oval halo around it, kind of a vapor trail. We thought it was either a rocket or a flare, but we couldn't see any defining characteristics. It was just a very bright light. It stayed bright as it ascended, and then it disappeared. As the sun was below the horizon, the sky wasn't very bright, but the smoke trail glowed for a really long time after the light vanished. It could have been anything, there are military installations around there somewhere, so it could have been a plane or missle. But, it also could have been Alien Grays. Who knows? There were three of us in the car. We all saw it. We are all in our early 20's and pretty cynical, but it freaked us all out.
