NASA rocket launch sparks stunning green and violet clouds in night sky (photos)


"Science begets knowledge, opinion ignorance.
"The "series finale" of the KiNET-X mission successfully launched Sunday (May 16) at 8:44 p.m. EDT (0044 May 17 GMT) on a Black Brant XII rocket, from NASA's Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia, the agency announced early Monday (May 17) via Twitter. The pictures probably showed more intense colors than the naked eye, as violet doesn't show up well to humans against the black background of the night sky."

Still quite striking!
