    I totally agree.
    
    The APT would have had fuel on board it, then there was the fuel on the upperstage. So plenty of
    fuel to put on a show. It almost been a year since the launch.
    
    Now to wait for the debris, to see how bright it appear's.
    
    So the rocket puts on another show, this time I missed it.
