Picture of The Day: NASA’s Last Night Shuttle Launch

 

NASA's Last Night Shuttle Launch from Ponte Vedra Beach Florida 2-8-10 0414

This picture was taken in Ponte Vedra Florida from the top of the 210 bridge crossing the intra-coastal waterway looking South towards St. Augustine and Cape Canaveral.

The photographer got up very early and took this picture of the last nighttime space shuttle launch (STS-130) and was kind enough to share with his co-workers and whomever else would appreciate the beauty of the space launch.
He took the picture using a tri-pod and the elapsed time for the picture was several minutes in order to get the full fire-trail
(this is why the stars are little lines instead of dots).
