More later but for now some pics grabbed from the video I took. suffice it to say the video needs some editing as i'm not a good camera holder type person! If it will allow me to upload the 1 min 43 secs video i took i might put it up now and edit it later. please note there IS more after it goes to just clouds as I try to find the shuttle again in the sky!
We kept our eyes on this all through the day
and saw great hope in this 45 mins before launch time
~Below is a quick sequence of pictures of the launch. The video did not upload so I'll build an abbreviated version in windows movie maker and upload that, hopefully with sound because that part was sooooo neat!
A very special thank you to Astronaut Lodewijk Van Den Berg from STS-51B Space Shuttle flight 17 1985 for having us as his guests for this launch! What an awesome sight to see!
You can see video of STS-135 here and of STS-51B here
