Minuteman III

Test launch.

After the Minuteman disappeared, an irridescent, glowing cloud was visible high in the west.

Nighttime launches from Vandenberg are even more spectacular. I watched one from just outside my apartment a few years back. Thanks to the darkness you could see the launch pad at ignition despite being about 60-70 miles away.
