North Korea missile: Inconsistencies spotted in Hwasong-15 images

Three chees North Korean leader Kim Jong Un celebrates after giving an order to test-fire the newly developed inter-continental ballistic rocket Hwasong-15

The U.S. military reportedly detected preparations for North Korea's most recent missile launch at least 72 hours prior, according to The Diplomat, citing U.S. intelligence sources.

"You should see constellations that are opposites in the sky".

Langbroek, who is based in the Dutch city of Leiden, said he's been studying the photos since they were released by North Korean state media last week.

Wednesday's missile test reached the highest altitude ever recorded by a North Korean missile and the state-run Korean Central News Agency claims it's capable of reaching the U.S. In response to the test last week, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called on China to do more to rein in North Korea, specifically through restraining the country's oil supply.

North Korea tested the Hwasong 15 on November 29 that invited criticism from across the globe. Two images from clearly same viewpoint, but dramatically different star backgrounds!

According to CNN, using longer exposures meant the movement would be captured as a blur.

The fact that three separate press statements were issued after the meetings speaks volumes about disagreements among the parties, said a source.


However, he said not all the images appeared to be tampered with.

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. Among the pictures released, one showed not just the stars in the background but also blurry people in the bottom-right corner.

North Korea routinely fails to follow that rule and has ignored several letters from the ICAO urging it to inform airline officials of its plan to launch missiles.

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

By conducting the launch at night and altering backgrounds, it's possible that Pyongyang was trying to throw everyone off.

These were not the only images that were used by him to prove his point. When asked about Langbroek's findings, Lewis told CNN they are still running the images. "They looked so crisp, that just didn't seem right to me".
