STS-114 Discovery RTF
July 26th 10:38am EST
This photo was taken off Beach Road.
Early morning launch day the xenon lights around pad 39B shine into the
STS-114 Crew lead by Commander Eileen Collins and Pilot Jim Kelly,
Charles Camarda, Soichi Noguchi, Steve Robinson & Andy Thomas.
Into the AstroVan for the 20 minute ride to Pad 39B.
This photo and the next few were taken by me from 3.1 miles from Pad
Discovery at +25 just about to go past a cloud!
+2:04 minutes and we have a good SRB sep!
A view of Pad 39B a few minutes after launch.
