    Hi:
    
    March 2008 I captured two rocket bodies flying through a fixed FOV with my 
    imaging set-up. I made a YouTube video in order to slow the motion. Rocket 
    Body 1697 shows motion other than linear, but with approximate CCD Chip 
    Resolution of 0.5 arcseconds/pixel the trail still is not very distinct. Of 
    course, the imaged trail can be nonlinear due to other factors that I am not 
    aware of...
