Got to try something a little different for this morning's stunning twilight launch of Atlas 5 with AEHF-5 for the US Air Force. The launch was the second from Cape Canaveral in just over 34 hours, the closest two space launches have been here since May 1981! https://t.co/YamRGXdCFQ
AMAZING! 🚀 A bright light that illuminated the Florida sky this morning was United Launch Alliance’s Atlas V 551 rocket which was launched into orbit from Cape Canaveral.
Tuesday, #SpaceX launched its #Falcon9 rocket. Less than 36 hours later, the Cape Canaveral Spaceport skies lit up again as @ulalaunch launched its #AtlasV rocket. #DYK the Cape hasn't seen two space launches this close together in over 30 years?

COOLEST VIDEO OF THE DAY! This was the view from Gulfport, FL this morning as the #AtlasV rocket launched from Cape Canaveral. Notice the beautiful noctilucent clouds left behind from the rocket exhaust!
The #AtlasV rocket launch this morning at Cape Canaveral created an artificial cloud due to the rapid change in air pressure and temperature! It carried an Air Force communications satellite into outer #space. https://t.co/KCwmV7CQH6
