On Friday night, after the library closed, I went up to the darkened Tower Room at the top of the Library and watched the nighttime launch of the shuttle. The photos don't do the event any justice. I took them on my phone, but trust me it was magnificent to watch it light up the night sky, soar above the treetops first image), pierce the clouds (second image), and then see it pass by the moon (last two images.)
Another reason I am lucky to live in Florida.
