Look at this thing caught in flight.

Google Earth or Google Maps coordinates: 3813'36.36"N, 11217'56.59"W

It look like a cruise missile but the wings are much shorter

Any idea?

It's a CRJ jet.

It's not a missile. It has been doing the rounds on the Internet:

Looks like any number of commercial rear mounted twin jet layouts to
me.
The wings have a different paint job from the rest of the body and
kind of blend in with the background. The leading edge of the wings is
clearly there, being a darker uniform stripe against the background.
Spots in the background are about the same shade but roundish. I've
not convinved myself yet (and am tired of looking) if the wings are
really that narrow or if a slightly different color tone or lighting
is blending them into the background better.
