PHOTO 19This rocket streaked off the launch pad and soared into the late evening sky. The rocket is faintly visible in this photo, climbing just beyond the crescent moon.
Loaded with extra propellant, and of reduced mass (3.64 lb/1.65 kg), this rocket rose higher than most other flights, reaching an alititude estimated at nearly 2600 feet (800 metres). Parachute deployed at the peak altitude, and rocket drifted downwind for a total aloft time of 91 seconds. Landing occurred 2500 feet (700 metres) downrange.
