This one goes beautifully with the morning shot you found. A night lift really brings out the drama. Would love to be there just once.

I love this image. The reflections on the water(?) are nice. I also love the way that the smoke clouds frame the shuttle taking off. Nice shot. Nighttime shots are hard to take and yours is very clear and beautiful.

sadly graffitigirl, I didnt take this shot - it's from NASA's archive and it isn't the shuttle - it's Apollo 16 - I believe.

Actually Apollo 17 - that was the only night lift-off for a Saturn 5. December 1972. I remember watching it on television.
