A military Delta 4-Heavy lifts off in a hellish ball of fire from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station at 8:50 p.m. on 10 November 2007 carrying a Defense Support Program (DSP-23) satellite into orbit. This military surveillance satellite is the 23rd and last of its kind before being replaced by a modernized system. The large image shows the lift-off while the inset shows the distinct three flame exhaust of the massive rocket climbing skyward.
