Missile Contrails
In this video frame grab provided by ABC15 in Phoenix, the contrail of a Juno ballistic missile fired from Fort Wingate near Gallup, N.M., reflects early morning sunlight high above New Mexico Thursday, Sept. 13, 2012. The twisting cloud-like formation, visible in Phoenix and Las Vegas just before sunrise, prompted hundreds of calls and emails to area television stations. The Juno missile, fired at 6:30 a.m. MDT, was then targeted by an advanced version of the Patriot missile fired from the U.S. Army's White Sands Missile Range. (AP Photo/ABC15)
