11/19/13 NASA Minotaur 1 Rocket Launch

Posted: November 21, 2013 in Uncategorized

NASA’s launch of the Minotaur 1 Rocket from Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia as seen from the East Point Lighthouse in Heisleville, NJ.  The rocket carried 29 satellites into orbit. I spent a couple of hours with my friend and awesome photographer, Jack Fusco, to hopefully catch the launch. We got lucky thanks to the calculations by Jack as to where it would travel in the sky. We never had to move the tripods. It was my first time at the lighthouse, so I stayed a while to take some shots after the launch at 8:15 PM.  The moon was very bright and conditions to shoot the stars were not ideal.
