My last post featured a model rocket blasting off into the sky. It was hard to see that it was a rocket as it was really moving fast, and my shutter speed was not fast enough to catch it.
This image was taken just seconds before it built up speed. It was already lifting off the launch pad as the smoke was billowing around it.
This was the biggest rocket that my son built, and he used a larger engine than he usually used in his smaller rockets.
It took off into the sky - completely out of sight.
We spent quite a bit of time looking for it, and only found part of it - the rest of it had been destroyed at some point in it's journey.
He hasn't built any in quite a while, and I must admit, I miss the launching and blasting off that we used to do.
It was a cool hobby he had, and I am glad he shared it with us.
