    Shuttle Atlantis launch pics

    I think I found my new spot for launches.

    If anyone wants any in the SHQ 7.1MP let me know.
    I guess photobucket limits you to 1024X768, Mine were taken with 2064X1536. I was about 13.35 miles from the launch site.

    Excellent. I am old enough to remember back when the launch was a major event all over the tv. Now these things go up and I usually hear about it after it's launched. I hope these guys make it back okay. I hear there was some wing damage.

    Its still a big deal around here. Kinda suprised not to see it on TV when we at MB. Shakes the crap out of my house but not as bad as the unexpected sonic booms when it comes back.

    We take the skis out usually and get a couple miles closer.
