Another Successful Rocket Launch From the Cape!

After several recent delays, the Space X Falcon 9 launched successfully from Cape Canaveral.  It carried six private satellites into orbit.  You can just barely make out the vapor trail above the clouds as the rocket soared into orbit - the launch goes so quickly!  Notice the osprey nest on the power line poles - I'm sure they had front row seats for the launch!
