Space cloud mystery answered

Remember that picture an International Space Station astronaut shot of a mysterious cloud in space I posted about on 11 Oct.?  There was a bit of guessing on what exactly that was, but it turns out all guesses were correct, for the most part.  A mobile Russian intercontinental  ballistic missile, the Topol/SS-25, caused the cloud in space during a Russian test.  This latest Daily Mail posting has a more complete explanation, plus some pretty cloud pictures from earlier launches.
