Space Shuttle Discovery

This is a picture of the space shuttle Discovery lift-off taken from our house tonight.
I love how the colors in the atmosphere come through!
Ignore the date on the pic. I replaced my batteries the other day, and didn't reset the date.
(I thought the stamp was turned off--oh well!)
You can see a blurb on the left. That is actually the shuttle, but it didn't come out very clear in this picture.
By the time I ran in the house and grabbed my camera, the jet-stream was dissipating, and the shuttle had traveled fast and far.
Cape Canaveral/Kennedy Space Station is about a 94 mile drive from our house.
It is sooo fun to see these events occasionally.
Seth and I are excited to go to Space Camp in April!
We will let you know how it goes.
