Too bad you had to credit NASA, you could have just told us you got this close and made us all jealous. There's no lighting quite as pretty as that on a launch pad at night.

As of yet no fixed date has been confirmed other than to say during a launch window between May 22 to June 3.

Launch date is now no earlier than July 13 due to heaters being installed on the external fuel tank.
