I took a few long exposure shots of the LADEE launch Saturday night.  LADEE was launched from Wallops Island, near Chincoteague, VA, about 200 miles due south of here.  In this photo, LADEE was travelling from right to left and was taken as the first stage was winding down and just before the second stage ignited. Not all that spectacular, but it was fun to watch.

    I am kind of disappointed I didn’t go out to see it. But I;ve have has so many false alarms with night sky events, I thought I wouldn’t see anything anyway, plus I didn’t know where to go to get a view. THere are too many trees here. Where did you go for this pic?
