The Space Shuttle by MichelleR



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.

    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.

    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.
