Posted: 4/27/2007
Location: Tucson, AZ
Shape: Cigar
Duration:1 to 2 minutes
Object seen over Tucson Mountains; possible missile launch?

I think what I saw was a missile launch, but if that is indeed what I saw, then this is the first time I have ever seen the actual missile flying through the air. I first saw a vertical wavy smoke trail above the mountains to the Southeast of Tucson, and at the top of the trail, I saw a cigar shaped object flying upwards. The smoke dissipated, and the object leveled off and flew a straight horizontal path parallel to the mountains, and probably somewhere between 15,000 and 20,000 feet. I was stopped at a red light in my car when I saw this and I was able to follow the tiny distant object for about a minute before I had to concentrate more on the road in front of me. Once I looked away, I wasn't able to locate the object again.
