Shuttle Launch

Early Monday morning the sky lit up with the last night launch of the space shuttle.  
The weather and time was perfect.
The launch was at 6:21 am and the sunrise was 7:10

I take WAY too many pictures. In the mosaic below you can see the dot in the corner, that is the shuttle.
This is a favorite pic

As the sun came up, the sunlight hit the smoke and made it glow!
We stayed around for about 30 minutes after

... then went back to sleep.
