    Kodak Z710 camera, set on auto and the ‘landscape’ option lit.
    It requested flash on the last few, I declined.

    Made my day seeing my 71bus in the pics too- Thanks Phillip! My bus on MAKE!

    Glad that I take the time to smell the roses and watch the sunset.

    Glad I wasn’t downwind too…..Ack!!!

    Oh, I NEED to see these in full size! Please, let me see them, I wanted to go to the launch SO BAD, but financial troubles kept me at home! :

    @ GreatRedRobot- you post a way to send to you, I’ll do my best to get them to you. At full res you can see the booster rocket separating from the orbiter!

    Pure chance of timing. It wasnt visible through the viewfinder.
