Japan’s space agency has successfully launched its Epsilon-3 small rocket, carrying on-board the Earth observation satellite ASNARO-2, at 6:06 AM on January 18, 2018 from the Uchinoura Space Center in the southern prefecture of Kagoshima. The launch was so perfect, it baffled many skywatchers, lighting up the sky with spiral-like features. Terrific pictures and look at the video below:

  1. This is UFOs photo bomb over the rocket!

    It looked like that Epsilon rocket had been destroyed by UFOs. Recently there are so many UFO interception whenever a missile or a rocket has been launched. Most recent UFO interception is Falson 9 (SpaceX) launched from Vandenberg Air Force base in California. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lZBhpeyDa7w

  2. We sometimes get things like this in SoCal with launches out if Vandenburg. It’s some sort of plasma effect in the upper atmosphere. Very beautiful. Worth keeping an eye on scheduled launches to catch one.
