Airlines Are Rerouting Flights to Avoid North Korean Missiles

North Korea tested the Hwasong 15 on November 29 that invited criticism from across the globe. Mr. Trump did not give any specifics on plans to combat the North Korean threat however, the USA moved a squadron of the military's F-22 stealth fighters to South Korea to begin combat exercises following the ICBM launch.

Singapore Airlines changed the route of its Seoul-Los Angeles flights in July due to concerns over North Korean missiles, Singapore's Channel NewsAsia reported Tuesday.

Langbroek pointed out that in two images, the exhaust plume and position of the number on the missile were nearly identical, yet the star-field had been edited. "Orion (Southeast) versus Andromeda (Northwest)!" tweeted Monday, along with photos of the launch.

"In the clean dark sky, you can see flashes from a missile from that long distance", he said.

It is very unlikely that a plane would be hit by a random missile, though.

In a series of posts, the scientist mentioned other things he found inconsistent in the pictures, which led him to believe they have been tampered with. "Stars just don't look that different a few miles apart, and we have no reason to disbelieve that this launch was from the Pyongsong region north of Pyongyang".

These were not the only images that were used by him to prove his point.

Essentially, North Korea's claims about the source of their images don't match with the stars visible in the pictures.

Langbroek's analysis confirms the early suspicion of Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics astronomer Jonathan McDowell, who doubted some of the pictures as soon as they were released last week. This can be a harder task to achieve at nighttime, when only the stars can give an idea as to the launch location, rather than daytime, when background landmarks offer more clues about the site.

"At dawn, North Korea launched an unidentified ballistic missile to the East from the environs of Pyongyang", according to the chiefs of staff of South Korea. We think these are just cosmetic alterations-changes to help Kim look a bit more handsome than he is in real life, much like a wedding photographer might make.

McDowell told CNN he believed the images were only edited for aesthetic purposes because the missile in the picture did not appear to have been altered.
