Scouring my old college-era CD-Rs for photos of a high-altitude missile test from year 2000 or so, haven't found the right one yet. Ah well, y'all kids enjoy your current rocket launches.
The milky-way-like blob from exhaust and exploding missile debris makes for lovely formations in the fading high-altitude sunlight, which were quite the rorschach test for my friends.
I recall I thought one photo looked like the starship Enterprise; the lady at the photo shop (before good digital cameras!) said it looked like an angel; my classmate said it looked like a dog. :)
@brion I found this one. No EXIF, and the text file only notes that you took it, but the files are timestamped Oct. 4, 2003.
@brion And now it's even more distributed!
I'll email you the original(?) file, since Mastodon seems to have resampled it even though it didn't need to resize it.
This Mastodon instance is for people interested in technology. Discussions aren't limited to technology, because tech folks shouldn't be limited to technology either!
