SpaceX Launch from Palomar

Wow, what a beautiful sight last night!  I get a message about 7:15pm last night to look out to the west.  Mike Pique was looking up to a thick cloud cover in San Diego.  He was hoping we could see the first west coast space launch from Vandenberg Air Force Base. Our sky was clear, twinkling stars!  We went out on our back deck and saw bright light through the trees.

We ran down stairs and I grabbed my phone.  It was thrilling to see!  Taken from our patio, that is our American flag in the foreground, looking out toward the ocean through those trees.  A couple minutes of beauty and wonder…  and it was gone…  next time!
