Discovery Night Launch

Yesterday morning on the radio I heard that the Discovery shuttle launch had been postponed until 11pm or midnight that night, and I seriously debated getting online to see if I could book a quick ticket to see my folks in Titusville. I've seen a shuttle launch live now so it's officially crossed off my list, but a night launch is something special to experience.

Happily, my parents (who now get ringside seats to all the launches) experienced it first hand for those of us who could not be there, and Dad snapped a few great pics.

I know!
The first one looks like an explosion, the second looks like sunrise, and the third...wow. Well, the third is just my favorite.

COOL! And love the silhouettes of other watchers and their camera flashes. Very alien.
