While in Florida a few years ago we got to be Weather One in a Lear jet on a Delta rocket launch. We would fly to the tops of the cloud and then to the bottoms and relay the info to NASA. Turns out if a rocket goes thru too much cloud they can build up static electricity and blow up., yikes. Was an awesome adventure, only time in a Lear. Yesterday was way more impressive and bright is not the word for the flames coming out.
