The launch of Soyuz TMA-19M, on 2015 Dec 15 at 11:03:09 UTC, from Baykonur, proved opportune for observing seldom seen
rocket plume phenomena. Jim Oberg has produced a detailed report, on what he describes as, "possibly the most diverse
collection of visual imaging observations of large-booster exoatmospheric plume effects ever recorded."

Jim's report includes photographs from ISS, ground, and airborne observers, with interpretation and explanation of what
was seen during various phases of the ascent. This is a late stage draft; Jim is interested in your comments and
insights. This is on-topic for SeeSat-L.
