Minuteman II missile trail seen soon after launch from
Vandenberg AFB on
Saturday October 2, 1999.
The Minuteman ICBM was launched at 19:01 PDT so its vapor trail was
backlit by the setting sun.
This condition resulted in the light being dispersed into a spectrum.
Photographed after sunset from Malibu, California.
I used a Canon Elan II 35 mm camera with 35-135 Canon zoom lens and Kodak
Royal Gold 400 film.
