We've seen a lot of rocket-launch photos, but few look like this. NASA photographer Bill Ingalls captured this stunning false-color infrared image off Virginia Wednesday, Sept. 18.

The Antares rocket is carrying the Cygnus spacecraft and 1,300 pounds of cargo -- including chocolate -- bound for the International Space Station. American Astronaut Karen Nyberg, for one, can't wait for it's arrival.

"It would be really nice to have some fresh home-baked goods, but the fresh part doesn't work very well when it takes a couple days to get here," she told AP. "So anything chocolate usually does it for me."
