Was a Missile Shot at Air Force One?

Social media has been buzzing about a bizarre photo captured by (, a local weather website that also runs a number of webcams located near Hanesville, Washington. The site’s cameras look across the Puget Sound at Whidbey Island from Skunk Bay and one of them takes time-lapses of the undeniably picturesque setting. Just before 4 AM on Sunday, June 10th, that camera caught what at first glance looks like the impossible—a rocket launch that seems to be emanating from or near Naval Air Station Whidbey Island.

The photo looks downright impressive as the streak of light appears from behind low, broken cloud cover and rises towards the heavens. Adding to the picture’s intrigue, what looks awfully similar to a large rocket can be seen at the end of the light trail in an extreme crop of the image. But how is that even remotely possible? 

The Naval Air Station, which I have been all over on numerous occasions, has no rocket operations of any kind. Furthermore, there aren’t any launch facilities in the region that could even begin to explain this photo.

The closest thing to something like that would be the Ohio class nuclear ballistic missile submarines (SSBNs) based not too far away at Bangor Trident Base/Naval Submarine Base Bangor, but those apocalyptic machines don’t launch missiles in the Puget Sound even for testing.






My good night cam picked up what appears to be a large missile launch on Whidbey Island Sunday AM. I sat on it for a while. After sharing with Cliff Mass he did a blog on it.

We contacted the owner of and they were very forthcoming with information and were happy to answer detailed questions regarding the photo as part of our investigation. They sent us the link to the entire time lapse which you can watch here, and went over the specific angle and field of view that the camera catches, as well as the camera type and its settings:


“It is a Canon T3 Rebel set up as a webcam. Images are captured about every 40-45 seconds.  3.5/20 second exposure/ 1600iso. I only run it on clear nights or when there could be severe weather.”
The positioning of the camera is roughly shown in the chart below, which is from, discusses the webcams functions and positions. The site’s owner told The War Zone:

“This was actually taken with “Cam4″, which is a little wider angle than Cam2 and pointing in the same direction.”


There were absolutely no indications that the owner of the site was trying to scam anyone or perpetuating a hoax. They seemed just as puzzled as anyone as to the picture’s origins and are seeking a good explanation for it. 

With this information in hand, we reached out the Naval Air Station Whidbey Island to see if there were any aircraft operations around the time of the photo. Not surprisingly, there weren’t. The public affairs officer went to air operations directly to confirm this for us. 

We then reached out to Seattle Center’s public relations representative and they checked into it and said the FAA had no idea what it was and had no anomalies on radar or strange reports that morning that would explain the image.  

I happen to be experienced with complex time-lapse photography. It’s worth noting that this type of photography can result in the appearance of distorted time and space in multiple ways. You are looking at a two-dimensional image of a complex 3D event, under unique lighting and environmental circumstances. What looks like a rocket being traced by its own exhaust plume as it rises into the heaves can actually be an object on a flat or even a descending profile coming towards you, or even an object moving away. 

Long distances traced by light can appear short and vice-versa, depending on the depth of the light being traced. The fact that the exposure lasts seconds, not fractions of a second, can also complicate making an accurate initial interpretation, but that information can also be beneficial when trying to decipher a mysterious image like this one.

One of the reasons we inquired for specific details about any air operations at NAS Whidbey Island at the time, including low approach or terminal operations of transient aircraft, is that we thought the image could be a fighter taking off from NASWI in afterburner and executing a high-performance climb. 

These dramatic maneuvers are common at some fast jet bases. But in this case, the early morning timing made such an explanation a long shot, as well as the lack of complaints that would have resulted in such a thunderous racket at 4am local time. 

Next, we pulled up Flightradar24′s tracking of aircraft in the vicinity of Skunk Bay around the time the photo was shot. You can see a video of those movements below. Note that time is UTC, not local.

The Alaska Airlines jet (ASA94) descending from the northwest would have been out of the frame of the camera, although at first, it looked like a possible explanation as either the aircraft’s lights or its contrail could have possibly caused the illusion. Then we noticed an air ambulance helicopter—an EC-135T2+ registered as N952AL belonging to Air Methods—flying right in the vicinity of the Skunk Bay when the image in question was captured.

    It was a time lapse series of photos of a helicopter moving away from the camera. Radar showed the chopper and it was in the right position. No missile.

    -Was a missile shot at Hawaii? All we know breaking news along this tug of nuclear war has been exploding all around since this proposed misinformation; only, the early morning of January 13, 2018, not only the morning as it’s 12th passed only minutes into it’s 13th, that waking me was a voice, lamenting, “one hour with the beast,” undoubtedly we all know what this mean. January 13th 2018, was the morning, as of three nights of dreaming right along damning, riches to rags sickbeds and sleepovers, and the warning about downtown Memphis Bells ringing. I mean speaking of damning sickeds and sleepovers, the LGBTQ and P for pre-marriage, and P for pedophilers alone have how many antichrist followers and growing?
    -Come these nights also, Jan. 13-16, 2018, was the inquiry as of a perfect dangerous man, when instead the perfect man Jesus asked whether the angels would ascend with the Bride? I know, nothing these thirty plus years of demonstrating rapture I’d considered, but it make sense, the dispensation of grace, 586 bc – 2016, AD, done; the church age as of Christ’s Cross, done; the Bride taken out, the wine press of God active; so one would think intravenous angels, of divine intervention these six millennial are as well, no longer needed, that’s not until the seven years of Islamic/antichrist reign are finished, and instead a 7th era/error, as of Jesus millennium reign. be aware, as god, Himself, Apb, The RAM
