Hanging in the sky at sunset was an amazing cloud that I was sure must have been a scheduled rocket launch from Vandenberg AFB only minutes before. I quickly grabbed my camera and managed to record it just as the sunlight faded. It turned out the rocket launch was scrubbed, but a meteor slamming into the atmosphere took its place. Seeing the whole event would have been spectacular. At least I saw some evidence of it in the smoke trail briefly lit by the quickly setting sun.
