A United Launch Aliance Atlas 5 rocket launches MUOS-4 for the US Navy. The launch occurred precisely 43 minutes before
sunrise, during a narrow window in which, as the vehicle headed downrange, it put on a spectacular show visible across
Florida as the engine exhaust particles became illuminated by the sun, while on the ground twilight was barely
beginning. It was made possibe thanks to a chance 19-minute delay. Photos this page credit United Launch Alliance.
