Floridians up before dawn this morning were treated to a strange, unearthly sight—a plume of light arcing over the skyline, looping, expanding, and dissipating into strange cloudy shapes.

It was not a space lasso, nor a joyriding bird with chemtrail wings—it was the Atlas V rocket, carrying a satellite from the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station to "a geosynchronous orbit 22,300 miles over the equator," writes James Dean at Florida Today.
