This image was captured of the Space Shuttle launch on March 15, 2009 at 6:42 p.m. The Space Shuttle launched from Cape Canaveral, Florida and the shot was taken from my front yard in Orlando which is approximately 50-60 miles away.

Thanks Paul. Watching them launch never gets boring. Thanks for checking it out.
Thanks Cathy, They are always fun to see launch.
Well you dont see that every day! great keepsake!
It is very cool to be able to see the shuttle launch from my front yard. I’ve missed very few shuttles in the past 18 years. This one launched at 6:42 p.m. I prefer when they launch even later. when the sky is completely dark and it takes off, it truly is an amazing sight. Thanks for taking a peek.
Thank you Ma’am, Always appreciate your visits!! Love you.
Good capture …
Wow! Very cool shot!
Thanks Veronica, I don’t know if you ever sae a shuttle launch before but if you ever get the chance…do it! It’s a very cool sight to see them take off.

Thanks Emmahlee, I’m glad you like it.
Cool sho. “History in the making” immortalized.
Thanks, It reall yis a wonderful sight to see. Thanks for checking it out.
Thanks Isa, I’m glad you like it. I try to get a shot everytime they launch one. It’s always an amazing thing to watch. Thanks for checking it out.
I love the colors in the trail – nice “sunset”. I think it would be such a thrill to watch a launch.
Thanks Tama, I’ve been watching shuttles being launched since I moved to Florida 18 years ago and I NEVER get tired of it. It really is an amazing sight. I always try and remember when the day it is coming back because when the shuttle re-enters our atmosphere there is a sonic boom. and, if you are not prepared for it, it really can scare you. It’s so loud that it actually rattles the windows and shakes the house. A friend of mine moved here 8 years ago and the first shuttle that came back (after she moved here) scared her. She thought a car hit her house.
