Southwest sky. Rocket or missle shaped went straight up until lost from view (binoculars)

Looked like rocket or missle going stright up in the southwest sky from Phillipsburg Nj. Reliable viewer and witness.


This report is reminiscent of a missile launch, perhaps out of the U. S. Navy's Wallops Island, VA, Flight Test Facility. We received a number of similarly sounding reports following a double launch of a "Black Brant V" launch at 2358 hrs. (EDT) on 04JL99. Please see entries for that date.
