Launches are conducted from vessels and platforms on an ocean range west of Point Mugu.

Command, or NORAD, issued a
statement jointly with the U.S. Northern Command, or NORTHCOM, saying that the
contrail was not the result of a foreign military launching a missile. It

was not a launch by a foreign military,” the statement said. “We will provide more information
as it becomes available.”

from the threat
of missiles or hostile aircraft.
