Went to Vandenberg A.F.B. with Marko Peljhan (and class) on my birthday; We had a great time, snapped a couple photos, learned a lot about how launches work and the different stages of what is involved to get those rockets and satellites off the ground. Hopefully I can catch a launch or two while I’m studying here at UCSB. Wish I could have got a couple of the command center (They made us leave our cell phones and cameras in the shuttle)…it was exactly like what you see in the videos from Cape Canaveral, except newer.
The rocket pictured is the Pegasus
Cool panoramic shot I made using Microsoft Photosynth (for iPhone):
