Artist's Description

At 1:10 pm today, the largest rocket launched from a West Coast facility lifted off from Vandenberg Air Force Base, California for the US National Reconnaissance Office.

Vapor trails lead from the rocket’s hot exhaust. Typically, any trails behind rockets are due to solid fuel; however, this was a liquid fuel rocket and so the condensation was due to moisture in the air.
