Update (1950 EST): The Japanese Ministry of Defense has announced the missile flew at an apogee of 6,000km.

Update (1934 EST): The South Korean Joint Chiefs have announced that the missile in question is an ICBM. It has fallen near the Japanese island of Okushiri. The last ICBM launch was July 13th, 2023.

Update (1913 EST): The missile appears to have fallen outside of the Japanese EEZ.

As this publication reported earlier today, North Korea launched a single short-range ballistic missile into the Sea of Japan.

At approximately 1830 EST, North Korea launched a second missile, according to the South Korean Joint Chiefs and the Japanese Ministry of Defense. As of 1850 EST, the missile was still airborne, causing the Japanese Defense Ministry to hypothesize that this was a much longer-ranging missile.

As of this publication the missile may still be flying. This is developing.
