SpaceX PAZ satellite launch from my backyard, 140 miles away.

After the fact, I have seen some of the spectacular vapor trails of launches from Vandenberg AFB in my backyard. I live about 140 miles away in the southern part of Los Angeles.

This was my first attempt to actually photograph a launch in progress - I didn't know if I would see anything at all. I was 100% totally blindsided when I saw the actual rocket plume rising into the sky:

Next time I might try a longer lens. That darn cloud almost ruined the shot.
