IMG_5026atlas v rocket, from my backyard 2/24/12

it still amazes me, the things i can see from my backyard…i almost forgot that there was a rocket launching from kennedy space center this evening…but i remembered about five minutes before it went up, just enough time to switch lenses and walk out to the backyard…ksc is probably 40-some-odd miles from my home, but looking to the north, i was able to see this atlas v rocket heading off into space, carrying with it the first of five navy satellites that will be launching in the near future…you can see the glow of the rocket boosters so clearly…i do love living on the space coast…
