Antares Rocket and Cygnus Cargo Spacecraft

The children and I headed to the beach last night to see the Antares rocket and Cygnus cargo spacecraft take off about 45 minutes from our local beach, but unfortunately, the rocket exploded just after lift off.  Thankfully, no one was hurt.  If you look closely, you can just see the explosion in the distance in the fourth and fifth photographs. 

Lots of news outlets have covered this event, including CNN.  You can watch the coverage here.

oh wow, and how bitterly disappointing for all involved! Thanking God no one was hurt!

I'm so sorry that the children (and everyone else) didn't get to see the liftoff, but what a lovely evening!
