This was an impromptu trip with zero planning beforehand. I heard about the launch from Wallops Island while driving home and decided to take an hour detour to the coast to see if I could capture anything worthwhile. I arrived to Oregon Inlet at roughly 6:15pm and had a little walk out to the point to set up. Unfortunately a launch time of 7:07pm left too much ambient light in the sky so I never saw the rocket but did catch a vapor cloud.
Here is how the vapor cloud first appeared in the sky. Unfortunately it was well outside of what I had framed for the launch timelapse, much higher off the horizon than I anticipated.
Here's a 100% crop of the cloud after it began to fade/disperse.IMAGE LINK: https://flic.kr/p/yCMEUK Black Brant IX - Vapor Cloud 2 by JR, on Flickr
