An Atlas V rocket puts on a show for beachgoers as it lifts a massive U.S. Navy satellite into orbit.
Playalinda Beach, Canaveral National Seashore, Florida, USA.
This launch vantage point is only reached after a bit of a drive and then a decent walk along the beach. I'd also like to note our Florida weather on this morning was anything but balmy. The spectacle was well worth the effort, however.
