Location: Del Mar, CA
|Contrail then white cloud, then blue/green cloud over Del Mar, CA.
((NUFORC Note: US Navy missile launch. PD))
Broad point of white light with a long contrail behind it; the area immediately after the light was illuminated/glowing. There was a flashing red light a short distance behind the area that was glowing. These lights moved across the sky as a commercial airliner would. After it arced across approximately 40 degrees of sky, the light disappeared. After 5 or 10 seconds, a large white cloud appeared, initially the size of my fist (outstretched arm) and finally covering a major portion of the western sky (perhaps the size of a hulu hoop in my outstretched arm). This remained for a minute or so and eventually dissipated. When the large white cloud was gone, a smaller blue/green cloud was left. As it was dark outside, it was interesting that both the white cloud and the blue/green cloud were visible in the sky.
