TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -
The White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico confirms to Tucson News Now that they did launch a missile Thursday morning.
It was fired off from Ft. Wingate in northwest New Mexico, near Gallup.
It was a Juno missile fired to White Sands Missile Range near Alamagordo, New Mexico.
Soldiers at White Sands try to shoot down the missiles for training.
The rocket trail showed up in the sky northeast of Tucson.
This trail is called a noctilucent cloud. The rocket exhaust was at a high altitude, creating a trail of ice crystals that reflected the morning sunlight before sunrise occurred here in Arizona.
This highlighted the cloud in the sky with dramatic results.
According to Lockheed Martin, the manufacturer behind the missile, this was all part of a test to detect, track and intercept a target missile.
The test included two PAC-3 Missiles against a single target. The company said the first interceptor destroyed the target and the second missile self destructed as planned.
