    Great to see they cleared that up...always interested in running these sorts of stories past the experts on this message board when we come across them.
    
    An interesting image cropped up from an observer on La Palma from Apr 16th at (what I presume to be) 22:45 UT... looks like venting or staging to orbit, though no launches match the time frame;

    Also suspected that the image might be a dubious "recycle" of an old pic, but a reverse search around the web failed to find any suspects... thoughts?
    
    Thanks
