    06.08.07 Space Shuttle Launch (as viewed from Orlando)

    Howdy.

    No, this really has nothing to do with Disney, but I thought there might be some people who would like to know what a shuttle launch looks like from Orlando. I live on South International Drive, about 5 minutes from EPCOT and Downtown Disney.

    I did not have any time to prepare for this. I turned on my TV and saw the countdown was almost finished. I grabbed my camera, rushed outside and this is what I got. I am a little disappointed I did not have time to adjust the exposure. The flame is a really intense orange color. I would like to have captured that.


    For those interested, enjoy!
















    If you look at the middle far left you will see two white dots. Those are the Solid Rocket Boosters.


    Living in Orlando can be somewhat cool at times!

    Very cool. If the weather is clear, we can sometimes see the launch from Miami too.
