Today was the last dark launch for the space shuttle. Only 2 launches left in the shuttle program. I had to get up at 5:30 this morning and drive up to where I could photograph this with water in front for the reflection. It launched at 6:21 am. Awesome sight to witness. I love Florida

This is about 200+ miles away from the launch site, Awesome

The space shuttle Endeavour is seen on launch pad 39a as a storm passes by prior to the rollback of the Rotating Service Structure (RSS), Thursday, April 28, 2011, at Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Fla. During the 14-day mission, Endeavour and the STS-134 crew will deliver the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS) and spare parts including two S-band communications antennas, a high-pressure gas tank and additional spare parts for Dextre. Launch is targeted for Friday, April 29 at 3:47 p.m. EDT. Photo credit: (NASA/Bill Ingalls)

The final launch of Shuttle Atlantis STS-135. This was taken with a remote camera donated to The Last Shuttle Project by Sony. We rig the remote cameras with sound triggers that start recording when they hear the roar of the engines firing up.

Wiki: The Space Shuttle Enterprise was the first Space Shuttle built for NASA. It was constructed without engines or a functional heat shield, and was therefore not capable of space operations; its purpose was to perform test flights in the atmosphere.

Was quite the experience to behold this piece of history today.

Seen in Kennedy Space Center, Florida. This is an original (and used) version of a Space Shuttle from the "Atlantis" mission! Really amazing.

Many thanks for your visits / comments / faves!

Well, since NASA is having difficulty launching Endeavour into orbit, I'll go back to March and show a scene from Discovery. I had hoped that this moment would occur. The launch was several minutes after sunset, so during the ascent, the space shuttle reentered daylight. What a view!

NASA image originally released April 12, 1981

 

S81-30498 (12 April 1981) --- After six years of silence, the thunder of manned spaceflight is heard again, as the successful launch of the first space shuttle ushers in a new concept in utilization of space. The April 12, 1981 launch, at Pad 39A, just seconds past 7 a.m., carries astronaut John Young and Robert Crippen into an Earth-orbital mission scheduled to last for 54 hours, ending with unpowered landing at Edwards Air Force Base in California. STS-1, the first in a series of shuttle vehicles planned for the Space Transportation System, utilizes reusable launch and return components.

The Space Shuttle came to Los Angeles on Sept 21. One of the flbys was very close to where I was. I can't believe I chopped off a bit from the end of the best shot. Anyway, pretty cool to see it so close.

The space shuttle Discovery soared over the Potomac River, Washington Monument and Reagan National Airport this morning. This is the last flight of the world's most traveled spaceship before being taken to the Smithsonian Institution's National Air and Space Museum for display. I was fortunate enough to be able to watch and share a glimmer of it here :-)

Thank you for your visit.

Have a great week everyone!

In early 2001 during a launch of Atlantis, the Sun, Earth, Moon, and rocket were all properly aligned for this photogenic coincidence. First, for the space shuttle's plume to cast a long shadow, the time of day must be either near sunrise or sunset. Next, just at sunset, the shadow is the longest and extends all the way to the horizon. Finally, during a Full Moon, the Sun and Moon are on opposite sides of the sky. Just after sunset, for example, the Sun is slightly below the horizon, and, in the other direction, the Moon is slightly above the horizon. Therefore, as Atlantis blasted off, just after sunset, its shadow projected away from the Sun toward the opposite horizon, where the Full Moon just happened to be.

Here's another shot from last Friday.

Sunrise from the Space Shuttle Atlantis in orbit around the Earth.

This picture is built out of photographs I've taken over the last year.

 

Some from the Kennedy Space Center, others from Iceland and some in Manchester. Then slowly brought together to create this view from space.

 

Limited edition prints of this and lots more of my work are available here shop.andrewbrooksphotography.com

Thanks to everyone who helped me with this image. Art & Algorithms Festival in Titusville Florida - Brenda, Marcia and Clifton. NASA, Kennedy Space Center(if you ever get the chance to visit do, the Atlantis is displayed beautifully). Heidrun in Iceland(The Northern Lights). Naomi, Mum and Chris Wareing for thoughts and advice, plus where to find the stars.

 

The only element which I did not photograph was the field of stars which I created from many of screen grabs from Stellarium. I used it to show what the stars looked like directly above the landing strip at the Kennedy Space Center when the Atlantis landed for the last time.

Space shuttle Discovery, mounted atop a NASA 747 Shuttle Carrier Aircraft (SCA) flies near the U.S. Capitol, Tuesday, April 17, 2012, in Washington. Discovery, the first orbiter retired from NASA’s shuttle fleet, completed 39 missions, spent 365 days in space, orbited the Earth 5,830 times, and traveled 148,221,675 miles. NASA will transfer Discovery to the National Air and Space Museum to begin its new mission to commemorate past achievements in space and to educate and inspire future generations of explorers.

The Space Shuttle Endeavour is on its last flight today before it retires in a Los Angeles museum.

 

According to the SF Chronicle, "during 25 missions, Endeavour spent 299 days in space and orbited Earth nearly 4,700 times, racking up 123 million miles." :

It literally flew over my house in Bernal Heights, San Francisco around 10:30am today!

 

I got really lucky with this shot. I was standing on the roof of my condo expecting it to come from the north but instead it came over from the west; I swung around just in time.

 

This photo was taken with a Canon 40D with a 100-400mm lens and a 1.4x extender (and I still cropped it).
