    I just saw this meteor/rocket looking thing flying through the western sky between Phoenix and Los Angeles :shock: . I was driving home at the time, so I pulled over and used my car to steady the camera as my tripod broke over the weekend :grumpy: . Turns out it was a "rocket launching a pentagon satellite" into space, according to CBS news. Manual Mode, 6 seconds at F5.6, ISO 400, 64mm I took this about 30 minutes ago, right after it happened. I cropped out the blurry roof of my car.

    The light is from the sun shining through the rocket's vapor trail.
