MAP: The Trajectory Of North Korea’s Rocket

Earlier this evening, North Korea launched a rocket, which reportedly later crashed around 300km east of the Philippines.

While it did not send a satellite into orbit as North Korea claims, it did travel around 1,600 miles, which many consider significant progress.

Here’s a map of the rocket’s trajectory from Japan’s NHK news. It shows where the first and second stage fell.
