- Total Time
I live about 10nm south of John Wayne Airport (KSNA) and at around 1930 local, I saw the strangest thing in the sky. It was a bright white light traveling from North to South at a very fast speed. It left an amazing contrail that was illuminated by the setting sun. I had no idea what it was, I guessed maybe a meteor or something. So I called the FSS to get a better idea, and they said they had gotten several phone calls about it. The briefer wasn't sure what it was but guessed that it was a missle shot off from Vandenberg AFB. I was wondering if anyone knew exactly what it was. It really was an amazing sight (whatever it was)!
