I checked an Apollo video....not much trail like the solid boosters of the shuttles so...yes

ok thank ya bunch....no I wasn't obsessing just entertaining with a thread...some are wound up too tight I gather

you guys keep your outlook lite...God is good all the time



so, you aren't worried to death anymore? I sure am glad that was averted. Could have been really catastrophic.

You guys are great individuals This morning I had to get to the bottom of this...hehe

What sparked it was a video from locals showing a sharp flame three wide goin up so isolated...smoke free launch on their vid device


clear sharpness even as it went through that first broken scud cloud level then the strat at two levels it looked like a light fixture....moving on out

the video of the launch.....didn't seem to be trailin

I'm looking for latent heat of vaporization signs........LOX and kerosene burnin hot.....at some level goin up....maybe the 800 milibar range.....fancy talk for 8000 feet up AGL.....hehe......the 800 milibar chart shoulda had some condensation nucleii.....fancy talk for ability to form a contrail......Oh I had to take a breath there when I said that.....


800 millibars is not nearly 8000 feet. At ISA. it's much closer to 6300 feet. And charts don't have condensation nucleii.
