A mysterious flying object that was witnessed crossing the air over the Middle East territories, including Syria, Iran and Israel could be Russia’s inter-continental ballistic missile (ICBM) test, HuffingtonPost.com reported.
Videos uploaded on the internet show an identified conic-shaped object flying in the high atmosphere leaving a trail of bright light and smoke and then coming into a whirl motion before finally disappearing.
“Mysterious light explained. Russia announces it carried out successful inter-continental ballistic missile test,” Huffington Post quoted a correspondent from Jerusalem Post Yakkov Lappin as saying.
One of the Israeli television channels said citing a source in the country’s high-command military staff that the incident could be rarely observed natural phenomena.
Other media outlets compare the incident with the swirling light seen over Norway in 2009, which eventually turned out to be a test of a Russian ballistic missile.

- PETEPETEPETEInteresting smoke trail...15:22, 09/06/2012I'm not an expert on such issues but the shape of the smoke trail is interesting. I know that they start to get irregular shapes after a while but the shape on that smoke trail seems to indicate some sort of maneuver. Some ace that Russia has up it's sleeve and is now revealing for deterrence purposes?
- arsanlupin... As I was saying15:52, 10/06/2012Then there’s the other kind of smoke – the kind some people like to blow up other people’s nether regions … It gets noisy around here sometimes, doesn’t it? Now – what was the topic at hand? Oh yes – the rocket launch …
What surprises me is (1) where it was apparently launched from and (2) where it was seen. The nearest missile test range is at Kapustin Yar (a.k.a. Znamensk) and the apparent target was the Sary-Shagan range in Kazakhstan. There are a lot of oddities to this, if it is in fact such a test.
1. The supposed range of the test for an ICBM is a paltry 2100 kilometers
2. The purported test flight is supposed to be west to east, but is visible more than 2000 kilometers to the southwest.
3. Some witnesses reported that the object began to spin rapidly before disappearing.
4. Experts noticed that the object’s erratic movements closely resembled that of a similar sighting in Norway in 2009. This sighting was later attributed to a failed launch of a Bulava missile from the submarine TK-208: Dmitriy Donskoi.
Israeli early-warning radars reported that the object in question had reached an altitude of up to 300 kilometers, which would explain why it was seen over such a wide area. However, the fact that it was so high above Kapustin Yar, and NOT heading towards Sary Shagan, and spinning rapidly like the failed 2009 Bulava missile launch, would lead me to believe that this test also was a failure – probably of the first stage motor and/or the guidance package.

The above is all conjecture. Explain how you came to the opinion that it was a failure. I see no logical conclusion to that unless you are privy to launch information the trajectory, the destination and the parameters of the test.
Jeez!...Bullshit as usual...!!!
I was not aware that Israeli eyes let alone their radar could see and track something three thousand kilometres high and above Kapustin Yar.
You appear to me to be simply an Rusophobic progapandist. Everything you post here is a covert put down of Russia all the while feigning interest in its welfare...whether it is failed missiles, poor weaponry or Ukrainian Russian ethnicity...
I have openly posted who I am including my ancestral name, my occupation, my ancestry, my love of the truth because as a good person I am proud of it all and have nothing to hide.
The truth is never ones enemy, but is a hard deer to hunt and when you have caught it, even harder to eat if you have ulterior, hidden agendas.
WHO ARE YOU...???

News that Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin would resign in order to run for the mayoral election in September came as quite a shock. Sobyanin’s political potential is fairly dubious, not to mention his approval ratings. He has not finished many of the projects he initiated and the electoral effect from these projects is expected to come a bit later than September 2013. Sobyanin’s opponents were not entirely unprepared for this blitzkrieg.
