You remember this story right? [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g_3mSyAlpIg]Contrail in the sky west of Los Angeles, Nov 8, 2010 - YouTube[/ame] Well, I ran across a new explanation for what happened that day while researching EMP's and how they might be harnessed to disable cruise missiles. I cannot vouch for any credibility but the story is on several sites and is apparently not really "new" news. If you have heard this explanation then please ignore this and continue on as you were. A Mysterious Missile, A Carnival Cruise Ship Disabled etc. What Happened? I have heard the theory that the "con-trail" was from a Chinese missile, but this was a very different spin and, supposedly, with Russian satellites having observed this.
