A Beautiful Day for a Launch

Launch Day with Sentinel-6 Rocket in the Background

The Sentinel-6 Michael Freilich satellite launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base on Saturday, November 21st. Notoriously known for the marine layer that covers this area in fog and often obstructs the view of rocket launches, I had low expectations (but high hopes) for good visibility of the Sentinel-6 launch. At T-0 on launch day, we had beautiful fall weather, low winds, and clear skies, and Sentinel-6 launched with spectacular views.
