The closest shave was on Nov 29, where crew on at least three commercial flights from Korean Air and Cathay Pacific reportedly saw the North Korean missile in the air before it blew up near their location.

North Korea has received global criticism for its missile launches.

"In the clean dark sky, you can see flashes from a missile from that long distance", he said. "That is not the case", he said. It was reported that he determined the direction of the photos based on the shape of the plumes of smoke coming out of the engine of the rocket.

Thus, North Korea conducted its first missile launching, since 15 September. 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.

Two of the images that were shot from the same viewpoint seemed to show two different constellations in the background of the missile, Langbroek said on Twitter: "Two images from clearly same viewpoint, but dramatically different star backgrounds!"

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.

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.

But in a bombshell admission the boffin claimed North Korea's closest ally, China, has also tampered with its own photos. The starry background helps highlight the missile and give it an ethereal quality, giving the photograph some texture that a near pitch-black background would not.

European airlines Lufthansa and Air France-KLM shifted their paths in August after two North Korean test launches in July.

That's an important data point that helps experts calculate everything from range to payload. Prior to last week's ballistic missile launch, the US spotted North Korea's military making preparations.

Those weren't the only images that appear to have been tampered with. Early last month, US officials told CNN that the North was developing a new, more advanced ICBM, one potentially superior to the Hwasong-14 ICBM tested twice successfully in July.
