Uploader comment: Five sounding rockets streaked into the pre-dawn sky on March 27, 2012, leaving trails of milky white clouds in a little understood part of the atmosphere. The first rocket was launched to the cusp of space at 4:58 am Eastern Daylight Time, and the subsequent launches occurred at 80 second intervals.
