The first night launch in four years. Makes for awesome visuals, just a pity the cameras can't handle it without noise. Unlike Piner I couldn't be anywhere close-by, so this is from NASA. Credit: NASA

It's simply stunning. Day time shots are wonderful, but there's something so powerful about the night shots. I'm!!!

It's pretty cool that you can be close enough to go there and take this photo to share with everyone.

I love how the massive thrusters provide all the light required to light the whole thing up. It looks magical almost...the wonder of the possibilities out there...
