Shuttle Launch

Mar 16, 2009 by Janine
Last night we went up to Melbourne Beach to watch the space shuttle Discovery launch (STS-119). We were about 40 miles away from Kennedy Space Center.

People cheering as the shuttle went up

About a minute after the launch, the loud rumbling sound hit the beach, amid more cheering.

The shuttle continues on to space (right), and the two solid rocket boosters fall toward the Atlantic (left).

It was awesome.
