Space Shuttle Discovery

Here's a slideshow of photos I took of the shuttle lifting off as viewed from my house on March 15th.



What? No jokes to see here. Move along.

It WAS beautiful wasn't it. I shot video. I just wish it had been a night launch

No way!
That's really really cool. Was it loud?

@ dizzy: I thought the same thing. If it had gone off a couple of weeks ago, it would have been amazing.

@ Heather: I wondered what type you were.

@ Steph: It was bizarre. The shuttle was almost out of sight before you actually heard the rumble of its takeoff.

Shawn said...

I'm not exactly one to judge.
