Question.... how high do these rockets go exactly?
When I've flown in planes at 30k+ feet, cities looked like small movie models, and large factories were the size of a pebble held at arm's length,
cars not even visible, nor parks, lakes, baseball fields, nothing less than 1000+ feet in diameter, if that.
These objects seen in low orbit must be quite large for us to see them on the ground, no? I'd estimate an exploding tractor trailer truck would be
nearly invisible to the naked eye if it was at 90k feet. Just curious about perspectives at such distances.

ETA- Good to see your old avatar back. I think that is how we all imagine you, because your responses definitely match Lithgow's facial
