Production notes:
Two local Nevada residents, Jeff Sullivan and Lori Hibbett from Topaz Lake, traveled over 800 miles last week to capture time-lapse footage of the launch of NASA's Orbiting Carbon Observatory 2, as it lifted off at 2:56 a.m. July 2.

This video was shot on three cameras simultaneously:
- a Canon 5D Mark III shooting time-lapse images using a 70-200mm lens (15 second exposures)
- a Canon 5D Mark II on a star-tracking mount set to pan horizontally, using a 16-35mm lens at 20mm, shooting 4+ hours of time-lapse images (30 second exposures)
- a Canon 70D shooting live video using a 70 - 300mm lens.

Audio of the NASA TV live broadcast of the launch playing on an iPhone provides a soundtrack for the live video.
