The very impressive liftoff of the Space Shuttle Discovery. Equally impressive was the noise it produced, a low freq rumbling and crackling. I didn't think we would be able to hear it from where we were, but it just took a minute for the sound to travel the distance!

It gives the thrill of being there witnessing the event! but not as much awe inspiring because of little detail and the shuttle looks a tiny speck.

Awesome shot!!!! Great contrast in colors. Probably does not come close to being there. Sadly, remaining Shuttle flights are becoming numbered.
