Description: The witness, his nephew and 3 kids were out for a walk after Thanksgiving Dinner and were looked to observe a rocket launch from nearby Cape Canaveral, Florida. The witnesses saw an orange flame-like object ascend from the area, then leveled off, made a right turn and flew south. The object was silent and was moving faster than an aircraft. They thought it unusual as rockets ascend and disappear while this object leveled off and executed a turn. The witness learned a few minutes later that the rocket launch had been aborted. So what did the witnesses see?
The Following News Article Was Found Regarding the “Aborted” Launch:
Having originally been scheduled to celebrate Thanksgiving by taking to the stratosphere, SpaceX’s launch was aborted at the last moment today. The Falcon 9 rocket had been scheduled to take off from Florida’s Cape Canaveral Air Force Station sometime during a 65-minute launch window starting at 5:39 PM ET.
The aborted launch was initially set to occur earlier this week, but SpaceX missed its last launch window due to a technical glitch. “Saw pressure fluctuations on Falcon boost stage liquid oxygen tank,” SpaceX CEO and founder Elon Musk wrote on Twitter at the time. “Want to be super careful, so pushing launch to Thurs.”Note to Commenters: If you are reporting a sighting, be sure to include the location (city, state, country), date and time of your sighting.
