Just for fun, a rocket launch seen from my hometown Oulu, Finland

I made this image manipulation to show the actual scale of the Saturn rocket in everyday environment.
Image shows my hometown from the marketplace and there is a map attached showing the locations.
The Height of the Apollo rocket is around 110m. The church, seen at left  in the image, is about 54m high.

I think, the city is pretty much gone after the launch...
