(Newser) – The Pentagon has had nearly a day now to explain the apparent missile that soared into the sky off the coast of California and it's come up with ... zilch. What's more, because defense officials still don't know what it was, they can't exactly say it's nothing to worry about, a Pentagon spokesman said today. A copter from a CBS affiliate captured the video of the object, which was about 35 miles out to sea near Los Angeles, during rush hour. The Missile Defense Agency, the Navy, and the Air Force all say they're clueless, reports Fox News. (Click here for one theory.)
