That looks like an awful lot of lead shot into the air, most of which missed. Lucky there wasn't a city in that direction $:o)

But yes. It did look pretty cool. I bit like the game 'missile command'

I wonder if that is the Nevada test range. Could be California White Sands. Doubt if it's anywhere else. Terrain doesn't look right for anywhere else.

It sure is a good way to stop those noisy crickets from chirping. Might buy one for that reason.

He said it was an actual missile attack (unless he just meant test with actual missiles), so I would guess somewhere in the Middle East.

If its a test I am assuming they work for Raytheon so it could be AZ.

Cool. I too assume those are projectiles, so those are tracers we see. Almost looks like lasers but when you see the close one in action it seems to be a gun not a laser

I wonder if the tracers are necessary for it to really work right [probably]

Itís kind of eerie seeing them start firing before you can see or hear anything coming. They see Death approaching.

that was not a test, that was live fire over in the middle east.

Guess we really need intelligence agency department dedicated to deep fakes if we don't have it already. It's likely only going to get harder and harder to tell real from fake, especially when we get whole foreign state intelligence agencies (Iran, China, Russia, N. Korea, etc,) putting efforts into producing them which I'm sure has already started.

You have computer virus, then you have really sophisticated virus like Stutnex. Same idea. (if correct, the development of stutnex took 5 years)

Maybe it's a good thing in one way. People will more and more not believe stuff right off and act like it's true before finding out they've been deceived or misinformed.
