We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
- T. S. Elliot
Minotaur Rocket Streak - Minotaur rocket with streak payload launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California on September 22, 2005. This is a classic example of the Twilight Effect, which occurs when the ice crystals catch the light of the sun which has already set and is below the horizon.
