Night Time Space Shuttle Launch

December 10, 2006 Leave a comment Go to comments

I was fortunate enough to have my first space shuttle launch experience at night and I didn’t even have to leave my front yard (Orlando Sentinel Pictures). We went out to the front yard at 8:45 not actually sure which way to look to view the launch. That question was quickly answered when over the dark horizon a yellowish orange glow started to get brighter. From the orange glow came a streak of yellow flame heading in a upward arch. At the top of the arch we saw a dimming red line drop from away from the streak. The yellow streak turned into a bluish dot in the night sky and sank below the horizon finishing the arc.
