5th Annual Air & Space Photo Contest
Launch of NROL-42

Amidst the planes flying into and out of the San Francisco Bay area, the Atlas V rocket carrying NROL-42 can be seen rising between the towers of the Golden Gate Bridge. NROL-42 was launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base, located about 250 miles from the Marin Headlands where this image was taken.
