Expedition 31 Soyuz Launch Time Lapse (explored)

This short time lapse is made from a remote still camera placed at the launch pad. The purpose of the camera was to capture good quality launch photos at close proximity. We thought you might enjoy seeing these frames put together at 15 frames per second. (there is no sound in this recording)
