Re: Barents Sea rocket launching

The anti-satellite missile in question was launched further south at Sary-Shagan in Kazakhstan.  There were some inland NOTAMS that were most likely related to the test on Nov 21, but not these.

These may have had something to do with the Zircon test, but I'm not sure.

Thanks,
Michael

[quote]Meanwhile, the Zircon missile was launched from the White Sea and
'successfully' hit a target in the Barents Sea after a 279 miles flight,
said the Russian defence ministry.

Footage shows how the Zircon was fired from the Admiral Gorshkov frigate
in darkness.[/quote]


Possibly related to these warnings after all.......
