Another Red Whoosh!

I shot this sequence of another "Red whoosh" This time it headed straight up until its contrail disappeared and I couldn't see it anymore. I was looking southwest toward New Mexico Test Ranges where I (educated) guess this thing may have originated.

Luckily I had my 300 mm lens with me.

I did happen to be recording my military aviation scanners at the time and caught a cryptic snippet - at about the same time as the sighting but I don't know if it is related to the sighting.

I'll post the wav file later,
