Fire in the sky

When the target missile was destroyed, sending a brilliant white, mushroom-like cloud into the dark sky, the crowd began to applaud and cheer wildly.

" We smashed it," several people cheered as the rainbow colored contrail gave way to the cotton ball cloud of destruction above.ยป
This is the kind of thing the national and international press mentions only when it's failed.

As a result of this selective reporting, even they don't know off hand how
far along anti-missile defense is, as long as Dr. No knows. Hey, at least he has exquisite comic timing.
