Flickr user throwingutahwas near the site of last night’s rocket explosion and shared this amazing series of high-resolution photos of the blast with us. For some perspective, the water tower in the photos is 307 feet tall, according to a Facebook post from Wallops.

“Did not go as planned. (all photos are unfiddled-with, other than cropping out the soybean field*.)” She wrote in the description.
