The DPRK launched a ballistic missile fell into sea of Japan

North Korea state media reported the Hwasong-15 reached an altitude of 4,475 kilometers (2,800 miles), putting the "whole" USA mainland in range.

North Korea has tested an Intercontinental ballistic missile, which posed no threat to the United States and its allies, said the Pentagon.

The reports from South Korea and Japan come after Hong Kong carrier Cathay Pacific said Monday that the crew of its flight from San Francisco to Hong Kong saw "what is suspected to be the re-entry" of the North Korean missile.

He said: "These two images from the same viewpoint, but dramatically different star backgrounds. Orion (Southeast) versus Andromeda (Northwest)!" the scientist wrote on Twitter on Tuesday. Langbroek suggested the images may have been composites, because they picture star constellations that should not appear next to each other.

John Conyers III Was Once Arrested On Suspicion Of Domestic Abuse
The victim then said Conyers III "body slammed her on the bed and then on the floor where he pinned her down and spit on her". On Tuesday the elder Conyers officially resigned from Congress after being dogged by complaints of sexual misconduct.

Moreover, a wide-open aperture and fast shutter speed would be used to capture the missile's rapid ascent, in which case, stars would not be seen clearly in an image, even in North Korea where there was very low light pollution. However, the longer exposure means that movement is captured as a blur.

So, I just discovered that the North Koreans DID tamper with their #Hwasong15 launch photo's!

North Korea has a reputation of altering images it releases to the world, tampering with everything from Kim Jong Un's ears to hovercrafts conducting an amphibious landing.

An astronomer at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, Jonathan McDowell, as a part of a conversation among experts analyzing the pictures, had earlier tweeted saying he also doubted the images.

Lupe Valdez Is Running for Governor
Texas Democrats have faced uncomfortable questions for months about whether they can field a credible gubernatorial candidate. Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins reacted to the announcement Wednesday via Twitter, thanking Valdez for her leadership.

Using stars to locate where a missile was launched is much more hard.

A North Korean ballistic missile was seen by the crew of several airliners last week, aviation authorities said on Wednesday, raising concerns about the threat to civilian flights posed by Pyongyang's unannounced tests.

Those weren't the only images that appear to have been tampered with.

"Aesthetics I think. Or just to play with analysts", Langbroek said, answering a question about North Korea's motivation in changing the pictures. Early last month, US officials told CNN that the North was developing a new, more advanced ICBM, one potentially superior to the Hwasong-14 ICBM tested twice successfully in July.

United reach UEFA Champions League Last 16
Everton, though, failed to reach the group stages, losing in controversial fashion to Villarreal in the third qualifying phase. Roma has advanced to the round of 16 as group winners along with Paris St-Germain, despite their 1-3 defeat in Munich.
