  1. National Reconnaissance Office launch from Vandenberg AFB. I was about 10 miles from the launch site.

    Found this video on Youtube.

    I subscribe to this email list that sends out a notice whenever there's an upcoming launch.
    Launch-Alert Info Page

    I saw a launch once many years ago and recall how amazing it was. If a launch and my schedule work out, I'd love to see another one, especially at dusk.

    Do you know where a good vantage point is for viewing a launch?

    Terrific shot BTW.

  4. Thanks for the kind words.

    Best place to watch is in the fields west of Lompoc. Just find a spot away from overhead power lines (pro tip).
