That was an unexpected bonanza

You remember how I saw my first sun halo yesterday? Well, get this… had yet another first time experience sitting outside while having dinner today.

The four of us were busy eating when my eyes caught something in the sky. My intuitive reaction was that it was a firecracker. I called out to the rest to show it. However, it seemed very different from a firecracker. For one, it kept on going for a far longer time than a firecracker. For another, it seemed too bright.

A few of the other diners got up to see it too.

We then realized that what we saw was a rocket launch. It was a first time for all of us. I am glad I got a video of it – at least for part of the journey.

Googling up Cape Canaveral schedule, we also realized that it was a SpaceX Falcon Heavy rocket!!
