(Before It's News)

Residents along the West Coast – and some a little further inland – reported an unexplained flying object in the sky Saturday night, and although some may be convinced what they saw was nothing short of extraterrestrial, the U.S. Navy says, in short, there’s nothing to see here folks, just a routine missile test.

Of course, the Navy addressed speculations by offering an official statement.

Navy Strategic Systems Programs conducted scheduled Trident II (D5) missile test flight at sea from USS Kentucky, an Ohio Class SSBN, in the Pacific Test Range off the coast of Southern California. The tests were part of a scheduled, ongoing system evaluation test. Launches are conducted on a frequent, recurring basis to ensure the continued reliability of the system. Each test activity provides valuable information about our systems, thus contributing to assurance in our capabilities. The missile was not armed. Strategic Systems Programs does not routinely announce missile testing. Information regarding the test launch of Trident II (D5) missiles is classified before the launch.
