|The Space Shuttle Discovery launches
at 7:19 p.m. EDT on Wednesday, October 11, 2000.
I was standing in the parking lot of the Seminole County Public Schools administration building.
This is mission STS-92, the 100th shuttle launch. It brought key structural components to the International Space Station.
|Here the solid rocket boosters can be seen separating from the shuttle (the lower point of light).|
|Here is the vapor trail about 5 minutes after launch. The sun is illuminating the upper part and the moon is lighting the lower part.|
