This was the last night space shuttle launch ever. We were so fortunate to be in Florida for this launch, and I was able to buy tickets on ebay.

Taken from the Causeway (7 miles away) at Kennedy Space Center at 400mm with a 1.4 extender (560mm total).

Post: Thanks everybody for your comments. Im crazy-happy that I was able to capture this and share it with you all. I liked this version better than the more-cropped version.

Grog not understand. Everytime Grog throws bones of slain enemies in air, bones turn to flying things. Grog think Grog need therapy.
