Antares rocket launch from Cape Cod

Who says you can't view a rocket launch from Cape Cod. Tonight's launch of the OA-5 mission showing the end of the second stage burn from the Antares rocket carrying the Cygnus cargo freighter to the International Space Station as viewed from Cape Cod, 400 miles northeast of the launch pad at NASA's Wallops Island in Virginia. The unsuspecting couple sharing a kiss on the beach was an added bonus to the shot.

Also, the photo appears on the front page of NASA's Spaceweather.com site!
