Very rare view of shockwave created by the Atlas V rocket as it broke the sound barrier and passed through a cloud layer. You can see a shadow emerge as the rocket approaches the bottom of the cloud layer and then ripples are visable as the rocket passes through the cloud layer. NASA had over 15 cameras recording the launch but only this angle showed the shockwave.
