Images of 2011: Space Rocket over Spring Training

For the final days of 2011, a look at some of the best (creative commons licensed) photos on Flickr.

Today’s photo is of a rocket (not sure of what, probably a satellite) going through the sky during a early March night… and visible from the spring training stadium of the Washington Nationals. Talk about local color.

A harbinger of things to come...the Nats "rocketing" to third place.

There were two launches from Cape Canaveral in March 2011. An NRO satellite, and a USAF X-37B. Both were night-time launches.

Actually, checking the Nationals ST schedule, looks like that was March 11th, vs the Astros. Nice.

This is one reason why the GrapeFruit league is better than the Cactus league.

This is also the only reason...
