On September 19th, 2002 I was driving down Van Nuys Blvd. here in LA. I looked up in the sky and saw a rocket streaming across the sky. I turned to my gf and said,"Well...I guess this is it. We must have pissed someone off!"
I pulled over, parked, got out of my car, took out my camera and began shooting. I truly thought this was the end for us. I was surprised at how calm and just simply accepting I was of my fate.
As it turns out, no such martyrdom was in the cards for LA residents that day. It was a rocket launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base. Some kid of test I heard.
This is the trail it left in the sky.
Very apocalyptic!

Mature content because I mooned the rocket.

That's by far the coolest rocket trail I've ever seen. It looks like a nebula.

Fascinating how much beauty can be born out of something made for destruction.

Oh man, I remember this happening too! I was a bit young at the time, but I remember how weird the sky looked and I was just like WTF.
Nice shot!
