Eye To The Sky

Back when we arrived In Green Turtle Cay, we were sitting on Ganesha enjoying the evening when I spotted a strange white light traveling overhead, leaving a trail behind it. We were in a quandary as to what it was, since it certainly didn't look like a jet. Finally Dave remembered that while we were in Daytona, we had been waiting for a rocket launch that kept being postponed. This must have been it and what good fortune to look up just in time to distinctively see it. A few minutes later I saw one of stages turn red as it fell into the ocean in the distance.

These are photos that our friend Amy took of the Space X, Saturn V rocket launch as it passed over Hope Town.....
 As mariners we always keep our "eye to the sky" and this time I'm glad I was. What an impressive sight!
