Minotaur 5604 views"Aftermath" September 22, 2005 marked the first Vandenberg AFB dusk launch in nearly three years. The Minotaur booster Lifted off from south Vandenberg just after 19:24 PDT, the start of a 16-minute launch window.
This last photo shows the remainder of the vapor trail several minutes following the launch. The upper atmosphere winds have twisted it. Taken from the Pasadena area using my Canon Digital Rebel.

Have you ever heard stories about the Wood Fairies? It has to do with Fairies escaping from the wood burned in campfires. I’m not sure where the story originated but apparently its true. Can you see them in the photo leaving the fire?
