(AP) - People across the Southwest got an early morning show in the sky Thursday, courtesy of a trio of unarmed missiles fired from New Mexico, one of which left a brilliant contrail that changed colors as it was illuminated by the rising sun.

The twisting cloud-like formation was visible in southern Colorado, Kingman, Phoenix, Salt Lake City and Las Vegas just before sunrise, and led to hundreds of calls and emails to area news organizations.

I got to see every second of this event. I was east boound on the I-40 at DW Ranch Rd at about 5:20 heading for the 93. It started off as a brilliant white light about 45 degrees above the horizon. It slowly drifted in a downword direction for about 20 seconds. Something looked like it split off, then about 10 seconds later it went away except for the contrail. Back in So.Cal, I got to see many missel launches from Vandenburg AFB and you could tell it came from the ground. This originated from a very high altitude!
