The rocket's perspective...

Rocket videos go by so fast in real time; it takes stepping through frame by frame to uncover the neat stuff. I really liked the onboard video from today's RX-16 flight - the colors reminded me of the old Cineroc movies. So here are a few frames from that video; I hope you enjoy them!
