Artist's Description

Launch Time: 8:47 p.m. EST on December 5, 2009

A United Launch Alliance (ULA) Delta 4 rocket launched the third Wideband Global SATCOM spacecraft (WGS-3), formerly known as the Wideband Gapfiller Satellite, from SLC-37B at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida.

Built by Boeing, this geostationary communications spacecraft will serve U.S. military forces.

This photograph was created in my backyard, roughly 25 miles south of the launch pad.

Geek Stuff:
Nikon D700, Nikon 28-200mm Lens, Focal Length: 28mm, ISO 200, Exposure: 76 seconds at F/8

Note: No armadillos were harmed making this photograph but they sure scared the $&!# out of me when they walked behind me! :-)
