Missile launch

Missile Launch Trail

Fascinating, frightening missile launch trail I shot tonight outside D's. When Vandenberg AFB shoots off a big rocket we get these, usually in the early evening. As a child I was terrified of them because I thought it was the beginning of a nuclear war. Now I'm just pissed off because they're testing a dumb expensive antimissile system.

In any case, it stops everyone in their tracks for a bit to consider the huge thing in the sky we just made.
