Midnight Ride of Space Shuttle Discovery for STS-128

The light was beautifully reflected in the Indian River. For a few seconds it was so bright that it was like looking at the sun. Then the space shuttle continued to roar into the sky illuminating swirls of clouds as it went. It was an awesome sight.

This is the launch pad and the Vehicle Assembly Building earlier that night. We were a little over 9 miles away.
