SOFIA at Sunset | NASA
NASA’s Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA) takes off from Palmdale, California at sunset. SOFIA is a partnership of NASA and the German Aerospace Center (DLR); NASA and DLR have collaborated on a range of activities and signed agreements on June 16 to work together to reduce aircraft noise and advance research into rotorcraft.

My Comments: Awesome Sauce. This reminds me of a shot of a submarine on the horizon in Puget Sounds.
