Rocket Lab is set to do its first mission of 2021, since re-scheduling, launching on Wednesday night a ‘sunset phenomenon' into the sky.
The company will be launching its Electron F18 Kramer on a mission named ‘Another One Leaves the Crust' from the Māhia Peninsula in New Zealand.
You can view the live stream starting at 7:35 pm (NZT) above, or on @thisquality platforms or at Rocket Lab's YouTube channel here.
A sunset phenomenon occurs when particles coming from the rocket propellant are left in the vapour trail, it then condenses, freezes and expands. The upper atmosphere will contain less dense particles.
