Watched a rocket launch from my back yard. It was NZ based Rocket Labs Electron rocket. Mission no. 10 "Running out of Fingers". Spectacular view of the plume being faintly lit by the sun that had set earlier. 9:23pm approx.

I have not yet seen a rocket launch in person and (relatively) up close. On my to do list! Excellent images.

Thanks! They are pretty neat to see. It's my 4th view of a launch, two in Florida seen from Disney World, two from my backyard at home. Not been close enough to hear them though, but they look amazing even from miles/km away.
