STS-116 Launch

Night launches are always amazing.

 

This is the launch of Space Shuttle Discovery on STS-116 as seen from near the top of Tampa Bay.

 

Even though I missed the first few seconds of the launch while I was trying to get my camera aimed properly, I'm very happy with how this came out. There were some thin clouds, which is why it's segmented like it is.

 

I think it looks better on black.

 

This was one of the most interesting photos of December 9th, 2006.
