Another Launch


I walked out of the condo this morning at 6:30 to the site of some odd clouds in the sky to the northeast. Turns out that an Atlas rocket had been launched on a mission to Mars about an hour earlier, and this was what was left of the exhaust trail. Weird... Just for the record, I'm on the opposite side of the state from the launchsite, so what you're looking at is about 140 miles away!
