      Sometimes I wonder if Elon's flair for PR makes stuff like this happen or it was just luck? It seemed to be timed so perfectly. From what I understand, the booster fired when the rocket was high enough to catch the last of the sun's rays, which lit up ice crystals that formed when the water in the exhaust froze. And it was backlit over a dramatically dark sky and over city lights and there was still color in the sunset and and and!

      This photo came from SmugMug customer Brandon Yoshizawa who went to the mountains to shoot it. Incredible.

      From stuff you have described, I'd believe that Steve Jobs might have planned it that way, but I suspect Musk just got lucky,

      The pics are certainly spectacular.

      There is an 18-year-old in Florida, John Kraus, who specializes in rocket launches and gets some pretty incredible shots. He was stoked when Elon posted one of his shots on Instagram. Vice News just followed him into the swamp and chronicled how he got this shot. I hope I started the YouTube at the right spot (22:00).

      Here is my composite of the entire event, as seen from Big Sur... it was an awesome event to capture!
