Delta IV rocket launch raises a question (mark)

A Delta IV rocket lifted off early in the morning of July 16, carrying a GPS satellite into orbit. I viewed the launch from Jetty Park, just south of Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. I jumped a fence and set up my camera on the rocks for this 2-minute, 4-second exposure as the rocket arced over the Atlantic Ocean. The image is not cropped; the arc fit perfectly in the frame of my 11mm lens.

The leftover contrail formed a question mark.
