Catching a rocket launch from 38,000 feet over Eleuthera Island in the Bahamas.

Description/caption of each picture is immediately below the picture.

A hush-hush rocket launch by the Air Force. We took off from San Juan for Florida and about an hour into the 2.5 hour flight, ATC instructed us to take a slightly revised routing for an "airspace closure." I suppose that this kind of traffic has priority.
