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.


it hit the dome on flat earth

A Dutch pilot managed to get such a sight earlier this summer. From the same thread and event the follow up images come from:

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


Incorrect I'm afraid. The plume *is* lit by sunlight, which is why it appears to glow. This would not have been the "incident" it was had it not been lit by the Sun. If you look closely in some of the images you'll see the yellow/orange part of the plume which marks the edge of Earth's shadow and the "terminator" (where day meets night). Everything above that part of the plume is lit by strong bright-white sunlight.

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!


Sunlight. It's high enough.

ADD: FireballStorm beat me to it. Kudos.
