Possible a rocket re-entry or I don't know.

Looking for other sources but they were streaming videos of something entering the atmosphere from multiple locations across the west at the same time.

Looking for more sources.

twitter.com...

SpaceX launch. Thought it was something that was re-entering.

Is it shaped like a 'toy for adults'? I heard talk about a cigar shaped veh. and remember what Freud opined about cigars, so I put 2 and 3 together...

That's actually pretty damn freaky looking. Have other SpaceX launches appeared this way?? Maybe it has to do with the air temperature or humidity or something reacting with the exhaust? I will see if I can embed it.


Got it! Looks eerily similar to the Chinese ABM this summer.

With any luck my pictures will come out. I won't know until later though. It went over Arizona and we caught it going down the road.

Here you go, that is pretty cool. I don't get to see cool stuff like this. Rockets in Florida just seem to launch regularly without cool sci-fi effects.

lol thanks

It was quite surreal to look into the sky and see that...

Looked like a hole in the sky... I must have missed those crazy "orbs" but I saw something

I catch the occasional fireball when I am hanging out at the bay at night. But thats about as exciting as the sky gets around here unless we are watching the landing route for the base.

man i wish i had caught that. i caught the launch out of san diego a couple years ago when the military did their test for response and it was spectacular. its amazing what the naked eye can pickup when its going through the staging and the amount of debris that twinkles off into space at separation of the stages. im jealous of you guys that got to witness it

So my nephew just asked me "Why does it make the cloud glow?" I guessed a super heated contrail kinda thing? Is that close or what is it? If you know and don't mind me asking!

Yeah. It's the hot exhaust gasses as it's climbing. It would be a nice smoke trail in daylight.

Some beautiful pictures in all threads covering launches. Nice work to posters.

I've always wanted to be on a flight in-bound from Hawaii or coming down the coast from SF or Seattle during one of these. Obviously one wouldn't get close, but to see the contrails up over the curvature of the Earth must be spectacular.

I had no idea it was launching, or that it would come over Arizona. It was amazing. I've always wanted to see a launch, but to catch one after dark just made it better.

The flame coming off the back of that thing is unbelievable.

Your also seeing stage separation there and the exhaust hitting the separated part of the rocket.
