This Atlas was the biggest launch at Vberg since the Saturn.

Thanks for the 'heads-up'! Had a good view from Goleta. It took 8 minutes for the rumble to get to the Fairview area and the doors at our business were swaying and rattling.
Not much of a trail on this launch and what was there dissipated quickly.

Actually the recent Delta IV Heavy was the biggest. It's 44' taller and had boosters which made it over twice as powerful.

Made me wonder: Would an incoming missile create the same sonic boom/rumbling?
