Startrails over Cape Canaveral. Atlas 5 rocket streaks into space with the first Wideband Global SATCOM satellite, SV-1, on the evening of October 10, 2007. As noted by the photographer "The military communications satellite was one of the most massive objects ever placed into geosynchronous orbit, weighing in at just under 12,800 pounds at launch".
