Remarks & Notes 
"Green light go for launch!" Florida East Coast train 226 has a green light to proceed north towards Jacksonville as an Atlas V rocket lifts off from Cape Canaveral at 4:10 am. Strong upper atmospheric winds and storms caused the launch to be delayed an hour, however, the timing was perfect with the signal lights being turned on a few minutes before launch. Note how the rocket lit up the bottom of the cloud and briefly disappeared before coming out of the top.

An ongoing/growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome, but seldom seen beauty of railroads because most of us don't go out after sundown or before sunrise. From dusk to dawn, lights are on! (And I continue to find new "Lights In The Night"!)
