My wife works for NASA and recently received significant recognition for her work there, the Spaceflight Awareness Award. In addition to the award, we were invited to see the Space Shuttle launch on April 5, 2010, STS 131. It was the last nighttime launch of the Space Shuttle. The viewing area is about 3.5 miles away, and a bit of a challenge to photograph, but I did get one shot that I liked. This is it.
