TUSCON - A test launch at New Mexico's White Sands Missile Range sparked UFO reports Thursday morning.
The launch produced a contrail visible from as far away as Phoenix, Las Vegas, Salt Lake City and and Tucson.
The test of the Patriot Advanced Capability 3 or PAC-3 missile, was conducted using a Juno missile as a target.
The Juno was launched from Fort Wingate near Gallup and flew to White Sands Missile Range to be intercepted by the PAC-3.

The Juno performed as expected.
This was the 14th time a large ballistic target missile has been fired from Fort Wingate since 1998. . . .
