    The moon reminded me of the opening credits of a Dreamworks’ film.

    I missed the composition timing that I was hoping for, but I got a great freeze-frame with the shutter timing. The rocket is under full thrust, yet at full size, you can see dust on the rocket fins.

    But, then there was an electronics mishap, and it became a buzz bomb overhead (Next)

    Update: I finally got the video online... The sound is the best part... (some adult language during all the excitement)

      Brad Morse at DarbsWorld posted the video, and the sound track is INSANE. It really captures the moment. Video Link (175MB, some adult language during all the excitement). Compressed PC version for IE, at 1.3MB

      At the end, and near the beginning of the video, you'll see me (in light blue) and my flikr buddy, Erik Charlton, standing at the middle of the arc....

      I like how the rocket is partially out of the photo! Very interesting shot!

      That's sweet. I am glad the rocket is half-way out of the frame - makes it even more original.
