Stargate Sighting? Can SG-1 be Far Behind?

According to Discover Magazine’s Bad Astronomy blog this is just a missile.

Minuteman III ICBM [ballistics missile] had been scheduled to launch from Vandenburg Air Force Base, California, three minutes before the burst was observed.

I however am going with a stargate…because I really, really want to meet Daniel Jackson.  Not to mention travel across the galaxy in seconds to really cool places — as long as their are no Goa’ulds there.  No snakes in the head for me, thank you.

Whatever it is (and yeah it’s probably just a missile), the video is still pretty cool.
