3 Possible Missile Launches Seen @ Sunset off Los Angeles, CA (appx) 50nm

I could not find ANY information on what was seen about 50 nm off the coast of Palos Verdes. Please excuse me if I go ahead and just tell you about what was seen - even if it has nothing to do with UAP's.

The few who were around me at the time, all witnessed a typical plume of a vapor trail which obviously looked identical to the one seen around Nov 10 2010 - off the coast here. I watched it through the setting sun and thought it was simply a contrail of a jet flying from west to east and coming up over the horizon. There was one prominent one and two other smallish 'launches' at the same time, with that spiral looking plume, contrail or vapour trail behind each. They were very slow. But really far off to the west. It was quite strange to also note these long, far-reaching shadows that all eminated from the set-sun but it was these strange contrail-looking plumes that had cast the shadows across the sky.

I only want to know if in fact they were launches from somewhere west of us. I CANNOT find ANYTHING ANYWHERE on the Net about this at this time. Nothing said on "Coast to Coast", and can find absolutely nothing about it on the Internet (NASA, NOAA, and indeed on Google) - and it was MORE of a sight to see this time.
