Wow, so cool! My old high school sweetheart works on the Vandenberg rocket-launching team. I miss seeing those weird chemtrails in the sky in SoCal. I remember the first time I saw one; my whole neighborhood in Pomona was out in the streets, wondering if we were about to witness the end of the world. As it turns out, we weren't, though there was a whole lot of speculation at the time.

Thanks! This is the first time I've seen one of these, and it was entirely accidental...I went up to Twin Peaks last Saturday and the road was closed off because they were filming a commercial, so I came back today, and while I was setting up my tripod this guy says to me "hey, did you see the rocket?" I had no idea, but these guys had come up just to see the launch. Bonus surprise.
