Shoot The Moon277 viewsThe final piece of Boeing's new generation of Delta IV Rocket Fleet lifted off from Vandenberg Air Force Base on June 27, 2006. The Delta IV M (Medium Plus) left the pad at 20:33 hrs Pacific Daylight Time and rose into the colorful twilight accented by the thin Waxing crescent Moon. What you see is the vapor trail left over from the Liquid Rocket Motor.
