Atlas V from Work

Time for another launch of the Atlas V. This time while I was at work. It was a perfectly clear Winter morning and a couple of us ran out to each the show. Just after it cleared our horizon it was burning bright.

One of my favorite parts of launches is when the contrail kicks in and gives you a scale of how far the rocket is at any moment.

Looks like there will be a lot of launches of many types this year. Hoping to get some darker sky lift offs. I enjoy them all but sunset and night launches are even more dynamic.
