Here’s a wonderful photo from the US Navy showing their launch of a Mobile User Objective System communications satellite. The US Navy says the picture shows “a 5-meter payload fairing lifts off from Space Launch Complex-41”. I say the picture looks like it perfectly captures the idea of shooting for the stars.
