Interesting Photo of the Day: Skydivers Score Stunning View of Rocket Launch

Adrenaline-pumping activities like skydiving are exciting enough without spacecraft breaking through the clouds into your airspace. But that’s just what happened to Staff Sgt. Eric Thompson of Vandenberg Air Force Base in today’s featured photo:

In fact, Thompson purposely timed his dive (located over Lompoc, CA) to coincide with the launch of a Delta II rocket carrying a satellite. As a result, he got to watch the rocket burst through a blanket of clouds with a beautiful sunrise as a backdrop. What a way to start the day!
