Artist's Description

Orbiter: Endeavour
Mission: STS-130
Payload: Tranquility ISS Module & Cupola
Launched: Feb. 8, 2010 @ 4:14 a.m. EST
Site: Pad 39A, Kennedy Space Center

Arriving Home: Feb. 20 @ approx. 10 p.m.

After a 24 hour delay due to weather, and another possible delay due to conditions at the primary abort sites in Europe, Shuttle Endeavour blasted off into the chilly pre-dawn Florida sky.

Location:
This photo was created from the Hwy 520 causeway just west of Cocoa Beach (so I’m not sure if it’s considered Cocoa Beach or Merritt Island at that point). I don’t usually shoot from this far away, but am pleased with this photo. Not too fuzzy for hand-held shooting an object roughly 20 miles away from me at this point and accelerating to 17,000 MPH.

Nerd Stuff…
Nikon D200 with Sigma 50-500mm lens attached, shooting all the way extended for a 750mm equivalent film focal length. ISO 100 (because there is SO much light from the plume), spot metering and (unfortunately) Aperture priority (should have been shooting shutter priority and 1/250 to 1/600th exposures), Exposure: 1/125 seconds at F/6.3
