Everything that is sub-orbital or beyond.

SpaceX Falcon 9 was launched from Vandenberg yesterday evening at 7:21 PM local time. This is literally perfect timing, because with sunset around 6:30, the sky is dark but the launch gets backlit by the sun pretty quickly, creating a very spectacular show above Southern California, even with the copious light pollution.

Shoutout to our cashier at Trader Joe's, who told us about the launch around 6 PM. I would have totally missed it otherwise.

Photos taken from about 150 miles away from Vandenberg:

Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast:
For it is the number of a man; and its number is One hundred threescore and twelve.

There's the right way, the wrong way and the railway.
