• Rocket Destroys Sundog

    NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory was launched on, Feb 11, 2010. A few moments after liftoff the Atlas V rocket passed by a "sundog" (a bright spot of light in the sky caused by sunlight shining through ice crystals) and destroyed it. The Destruction is visible in a spectacular shock wave.

    The shock wave appears at about 1:55 in the video. There's also another view available at the NASA website.
