Unidentified object caught on Hansville weather cam
An unidentified object was caught on camera in Hansville over the weekend.
One of Greg Johnson’s weather cams shows what he says “clearly looks like a very large missile launch from Whidbey Island.” Naval Air Station Whidbey Island is located in Oak Harbor.
A spokesperson for Naval Air Station Whidbey Island said, “we don’t have missile launch facilities at NAS Whidbey Island, so we’re not sure what this is.”
According to a Facebook post by Johnson, a long-time meteor observer said the object was “definitely not a meteor.”
University of Washington Professor of Atmospheric Sciences Cliff Mass says “it really looks like the ascent of a rocket.” However, he has never heard of rocket launches from Whidbey Island.
