Discovery Night Launch

STS-128. Space Shuttle Discovery lights up the night sky over Palm Bay Florida. There were clouds between here and the Cape but I couldn’t miss the last night launch. Discovery launched at 11:59 PM August 28th 2009. This is reportedly the very last nighttime shuttle launch. I have an even larger, 2048 x 1536 version available if anyone wants it.
Exp. time: 8 sec.

    I really wish my camera could do more than an 8 sec exposure. 30+ would have been perfect that night.
