Space Shuttle Launch 
March, 2009 


Looking south and waiting for Blast-Off

Cape Kennedy is about an hour, by car, to the south of us


Zooming in on that crowd 

Our Group 

Crowd's blurry -- I focused in on the light 

Seconds after Blast-Off 

Zooming out on same picture 

If we could see it, Cape Kennedy is just above those two people standing the edge of the surf

What a sight! 


Separation of the two fuel tanks which are to the right

The shuttle is that blip to the left


Tanks dropping back to Earth--residue exhaust streams evident 


Back to the fading stream
