    Thought seeing this was pretty cool.

    HiRISE Captured Perseverance During Descent to Mars

    The descent stage holding NASA’s Perseverance rover can be seen falling through the Martian atmosphere.

    From Wikipedia:
    High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment is a camera on board the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter which has been orbiting and studying Mars since 2006. The 65 kg (143 lb), US$40 million instrument was built under the direction of the University of Arizona's Lunar and Planetary Laboratory by Ball Aerospace & Technologies Corp. It consists of a 0.5 m (19.7 in) aperture reflecting telescope, the largest so far of any deep space mission, which allows it to take pictures of Mars with resolutions of 0.3 m/pixel (about 1 foot), resolving objects below a meter across.

    HiRISE has imaged Mars exploration rovers on the surface, including the Opportunity rover and the ongoing Curiosity mission.[1]

    An unarmed Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missile is scheduled to launch from Vandenberg Air Force Base this week.

    The test launch window is between 11:47 p.m. Tuesday and 5:47 a.m. Wednesday from the northern part of the base.

    “The purpose of the ICBM test launch program is to validate and verify the effectiveness, readiness and accuracy of the weapon system, according to Air Force Global Strike Command," base officials said in a press release.

    It's the first test launch of a Minuteman III to take place at Vandenberg this year. The last one was in October.

    Find anyone covering it? Didn't see it in my youtube space links. Didn't see anything on Spaceflight.com either.

    You might have to hop in the car and film it for us!

    Unfortunately I fell asleep before

    An operational test launch of an Air Force Global Strike Command unarmed Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missile launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base Tuesday night at 11:49 p.m.

    According to Air Force Global Strike Command, the purpose of the ICBM test launch program is to validate and verify the safety, security, effectiveness and readiness of the weapon system.

    Col. Joseph Tringe, 30th Space Wing individual mobilization augmentee to the commander, was the launch decision authority and said, “This first launch of the year demonstrates our ability to provide safe, secure range operations to our launch partners while maintaining a continuous state of readiness. The outstanding teamwork of the Airmen and Guardians here at Vandenberg is a true testament to the future of space operations on the Western Range and our ability to defend the United States and our allies.”

    The last Minuteman III missile launched in October of 2020.
