Videos & Pictures Of Events & Private Launches
I have posted folders of pictures/videos of events I attend and some of my own launches. Due to size limitations here at my free website, they are all posted on appropriate links below. All pictures/videos are taken on a Canon A590is 8 Megapixel camera. The photo format is .jpg and the videos are .avi, which play just fine on Windows media player. None of the content at the links below are used on this website, it is all original content.
It is not easy to get good footage of a rocket launching and its flight.--Its even harder when the sun is so bright you cannot see the view screen on the camera! I have great respect for the amazing shots seen in all those glossy rocket magazines.
Red Glare VI
The below link contains a folder of pictures and videos that were taken 4/17/09 at Red Glare VI. These are the most exciting launches I've been to. They are held every year and you will not be dissapointed. Even if you are not interested in rockets as a hobby, you and the kids will be amazed at the size and ferocity of the rockets launched at this event. Rockets at this launch can run up to 225 lbs. and scream into flight on motors up to size M.--These rockets are launched on hydraulic towers mounted on trailers--complete with outriggers!
This launch is held the third Saturday of each month. I will try to have the latest launch updated every month.
These are videos of some of my adventures in rocketry. I will keep it updated.
Saturn 7 Launch
Here is video and pics of the maiden flight of the 1/10 scale Saturn 7 rocket launch. This 36 foot tall model is the worlds largest model rocket. It launched on 9 N motors and a single P motor and recovered successfully in Price, MD on 4/25/09. There are also detailed pictures of the model at its static display in the Red Glare 6 folder.
