Wife took these pics on the way into work, St. Petersburg, FL. She said, it then went straight up and out of sight. Her words, "it went up like a shuttle." Ideas?

It was a rocket launch from NASA.
I'm surprised she saw it on your coast. It was beautiful.

I refuse to believe that. It’s a UFO full of aliens.

Likely this?

"United Launch Alliance’s Atlas V rocket put on a stunning pre-sunrise show as it launched the AEHF-5 satellite at 6:13am this morning."

skip to 59:50 for actual liftoff.

Atlas rocket launch from cape Canaveral. Liftoff was 6:13. Don't worry. Its not the government clearing the aliens from Area 51.

One of the most spectacular launches I've ever seen. Viewed from the west coast, launched at early dawn, the rocket rose into the sun as it was rising brilliantly illuminating the exhaust plume. I'll bet it freaked out some people for sure.

Since it is Florida, probably some kind of pollution.

Saw it in Miami on my way to work as well. A WTF is that moment for sure but googled Space X launches and figured it out. A cool way to start the early commute in.
