North Korea launched an intercontinental ballistic missile capable of reaching most of the United States on Friday.

According to multiple reports the missile flew 2,300 miles into space and stayed in the air for 47 minutes.

The Pentagon only confirmed that is was a ICBM meaning it is capable of reaching at least about 3,400 miles and was in the air for more than 40 minutes. Other sources have speculated that most of the United States is within range of North Korea’s missiles.

Following the launch, the United States and South Korea ran drills that included The United States Army Traditional Missile System and South Korea’s Hyunmoo-2 Missile.
