The pace of spaceflight has increased a great deal in the last year or so. SpaceX alone had 17 launches. 2018 is starting off with a bang as well. I had the opportunity to photograph both the super-secret (and unfortunately failed) launch of the Zuma Payload aboard a Falcon 9, as well as, the launch of the SBIRS-4 Ballistic Missile Warning Satellite aboard an Atlas 5. Both were early evening launches under clear skies and cool, dry conditions. A very nice change from the usual conditions. You can find some interesting additional photos in my Space and Astronomy Page.
