Space War? After SpaceX the launch of a Topol/SS-25 Missile is causing a Sky Spectacle!

On December 26, 2017 the Strategic Rocket Forces conducted a successful launch of a Topol/SS-25 missile from the Kapustin Yar test site. The test was used "to collect experimental data that will be used to develop advanced missile defense countermeasures."

The launch of the Topol/SS-25 missile during the night gave an amazing light show, similar to the SpaceX rocket and was even visible in Austria and captured by Gerald Reczek who posted the images on his Facebook page.

Coincidence or not but the launch comes several days after the launch of the SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket carrying “Satellites”.

Despite the amazing sky phenomena caused by this kind of rocket/missile launches, we may wonder whether there is something going on in space or not.
