Photographer's Note

My wife saw it fist and asked me: Is it UFO? I surely hope so! This is residue of the smoke of a rocket launched by the air force from Vandenberg California last night. The smoke is high above the shadow of earth so it is lighted up by sun light in the middle of the night. It looks so magical because we see day and night at the same time! This picture was taken from home, and in the backyard in Los Angeles. The horizontal white strip below is the Sanyo advertisement blimp. The blimp was not expected. I was fumbling with the camera and when I looked up I saw the blimp. I was doubling pleasantly surprised! This is my fist time lap picture and I am very happy with the result. I hope you like it.
