Isaan Bang Fai (Rockets)

Rocket Festivals happen in Isaan at the beginning of the rainy season. These home made rockets can reach altitudes best measured in kilometers. While in Nong Khai I happened two observe two in flight. I’ve altered the photo colors to highlight the rocket exhaust trails. The trail on the right was left by a rocket fired about three minutes earlier. The one on the left did a U turn when thrust fell off, leaving a trail as it returned to earth.
