We saw something in the north sky at around 20:40 that was not normal.

My wife and I were sitting in the backyard when I saw a steaking light that left a trail of smoke. We first thought it was a firework or a flare but then it kept going higher in the sky and then it seemed to explode. At first it looked like a firework but then it looked like when you watch a space move when a planet explodes it looked just like something out of a star wars movie. It was not normal.......

((NUFORC Note: We assume that the witness describes above the launch of a Titan IV missile out of Cape Canaveral, which occurred at 20:55 hrs. (Eastern) on this date. The missile apparently was launched to the northeast, so it was visible along the eastern shoreline of the U. S.. PD))
