perhaps phage, you will reply to my sis, who stated that this is no rocket, but a huge massive solar flare and that this was in her astro physics classes in school. I will say that maybe since ellinin is around, maybe this is what triggered the solar flare. hmmmmm.

Thanks for the video... It was explained very thoroughly in the article.

Well, the sun shines every day, but we arent constantly looking at rainbows. And the sun sets every night, but it doesnt always make a green flash, and the moon is out every night, but there arent always moon halos. So why would you expect the same light show every time a rocket is launched? Atmospheric conditions differ, cloud cover and visibility differ, and so its not really unreasonable to think that sometimes, setting of a rocket will make some interesting light effect.

The video title is 'Atmospheric Flare From A Minuteman III ICBM Missile.'
I'm going with that.
