This made me laugh, by the way. Sickle... of cloud? Hey, sure enough! There is a sickle in the clouds. See, the first astronomical pattern that I spotted when I looked at this photo was the Sickle in Leo, near the horizon. But yes indeed, there's a nice, coincidental echo of the astronomical Sickle in the clouds over the launch site.
