Los Angeles, California (CNN) -- The Pentagon is unable to explain images of what witnesses took to be a high-altitude rocket launched off the coast of southern California at sunset Monday, officials said.

I've seen it on TV here too. It doesn't look like a contrail to me, it's a far too thick cloud and seems to come from the surface. Maybe some amateur was illegally launching something.

Anyone checked if there are any hollowed-out volcanoes in the area?

Thats Fireball XL5 on a new mission. Else Flash Gordon.
I wonder how many are old enough to have actually seen it.

Somebody did some research and says it was US Airways flight 808.

'Mystery' contrail seen from space (New Scientist). It really matches US Airways flight 808 very well.
