Default Another missile launch?

Today NASA released a satellite photo of last weeks so-called clandestine missile launch, showing it was indeed a horizontal contrail that only looked vertical from that particular camera position on earth. This evening conditions were again right for contrail formation, and there were many. The trail on the right could have looked like another missile trail, but the others further to the side nearby looking less vertical prove it isn't.

This is what it looked like 4 minutes earlier - no doubt here. What you might think depends not only on where you are, but when you are looking!

You mean those poles aren't holding up the sky? What would Chicken Little say?
