    The one on June 29, 2018 was at sunrise and the effect on the vapor trail immediately expanding as it hit the upper atmosphere left me "slack jawed". The rumbling from the launch took about 5 minutes to reach us and I managed to catch the visual and sound effects on video.

    I will certainly try. I tried to post to Youtube but got an error message saying the site had issues.
    I'll try to get it off my phone and to my computer and forward to you.

    I actually saw the vapor trail as it formed a large circle. What was unique about it was that I live 400+ miles away in Northwest Florida. I caught it as I was driving to work. I had never seen one from here but my brother lives in Palm Bay and I have seen a few of the Space Shuttle launches from his place.

    400 miles, going away from you and still visible. Yeah this one was unique and I think that's why they picked sunrise for the launch.
    Those shuttle launches at night time would have been really neat from Palm Bay. That's about halfway between me and Cape Canaveral.
