NASA Space Shuttle Launch Photos Gallery

Other launch photos will be added in the future.

The Space Shuttle Discovery on the STS-119 mission launched at 7:43pm on March 15, 2009, shortly after the sun dropped below the horizon. A low cloud bank obscured the first few seconds of the launch but then it was clear of the clouds and a gorgeous site in the Miami area 200 miles to the south. The sun's rays hit the exhaust plume lighting it up like I've never seen it before. Godspeed Discovery crew!
