Blastoff!

The flame is 18.5 long. On other photos, nine discrete Mach diamonds can be seen in the plume.

 

The sound was incredible, deep, and loud… louder than any rocket I have heard. I was hanging out at the far pads and was quite close to this one (this was only a 170mm zoom vs. 400mm for most of the other BALLS shots)
