Rocketry Vic Aug Launch

Based in the greater Melbourne region, MARS is the home of amateur rocketry in Victoria. (Not to be confused with the planet, we are much closer than the planet and operate less rovers)

I've seen a few of Troy's hybrids over the last few years and I must say they're a jaw-dropping experience!

The first high powered rocket I saw fly was Troy's Black Brant on a hybrid and it blew my tiny mind!

For anyone who was at the launch on Sunday, imagine in the dim light of dusk (almost dark), seeing the flame and the glow of Troy's launch all the way up until it just became a bright point.... Blake is right it did look like a satellite! :D
