A Delta IV rocket, flying in the medium confiruation with two solid rocket boosters and standing 206 feet tall, lifts off just nine minutes after sunset on a crystal clear evening with the L-27 classified payload onboard for the US National Reconnaisance Office. An exceptionally clear day presented spectacular rainbow colors as the rocket climbed into sunlight and out of sight, with the belt of Venus as a backdrop!
