((NUFORC Note: We believe that the cluster of reports that appear her for the evening of Monday, June 25, 2001, were caused by the launch of an ICBM by the U. S. Navy from the Kennedy Space Center. We are grateful to the FAA Military Liason office in Jacksonville, FL; the USAF 45th RANDS unit; and the Naval Operations and Testing Unit ("NOTU") for their assistance in our attempt to determine the cause of these reports. A similar test was conducted by the USS West Virginia submarine off the east coast of Florida on March 07, 1998, which caused similar reports. PD))
