Viewed from the Banana River Viewing Site at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida, space shuttle Discovery arcs through a cloud-brushed sky lighted by the trail of fire after launch on the STS-128 mission. Liftoff from Launch Pad 39A was on time at 11:59 p.m. EDT. The STS-128 mission is the 30th International Space Station assembly flight and the 128th space shuttle flight.

This capture is quite unique in it's presentation Phil I love the arc as well as the different colors that are reflected near the arc at the space shuttle 'end'.

And i always believed space ships went right into the sky, but that really would be boring.

Great shot indeed.
