Yesterday, the largest operational rocket on the planet launched a classified payload for the US Navy's National Reconnaissance Office. Virtually nothing is known about the mission, but it is widely speculated to be an electronic signals intelligence (ELINT) spy satellite and one of the largest satellites to be put in orbit.

The launch was initially slated for Thursday, but poor weather forced a scrub, and a second attempt was made on Saturday. Liftoff occurred at 1:51pm.

Totally awesome shots. This thing must have been so loud.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.

Your pictures are stunning! Thank you for sharing. I hope you dont mind me sharing mine...they provide a different perspective, but in no way near the quality of yours.

I was lucky to be in Florida at the time of the "rescheduled" launch. We arrived Wednesday night and learned that the launch was scheduled for Thursday. We shifted our plans to be available only to have Thursdays launch scrubbed due to weather. However, the reschedule to Saturday worked out for us as we were available to wait it out. My family and I have never seen a launch and have been in Cocoa Beach for 4 other vacations! And luck would have it, Saturday provided an all systems Go! We viewed the launch from the Exploration Tower in Port Canaveral.

The launch pad is just to the right of the large cement tower that is left of center.

Had I know of this possible launch, I would have rented a longer lens, but thankfully I had my 250mm with me on my 70D.
