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.
