DSMP F19 and Sentinel 1A are away!

DMSP F19 successfully lifted off from Vandenberg AFB in California today!  This spacecraft has been sitting in storage for fifteen years, thanks to its predecessors lasting much longer than anticipated, but now it will go into service.

And a few hours later, Sentinel 1A launched aboard a Soyuz-Fregat from Guiana Space Center, French Guiana, South America.  The “seeing” is unusually good in this video; I think it’s the best view of Soyuz booster separation that I’ve seen (starting around 2:30 in this video).
