Hey I know this place
It's counting down to the second Thaicom 8 launch attempt!
James upgraded his day pass. "You want [the picture] like that?" "He wants it like that.."
The only way to get to the Saturn V center is to take the bus tour, which felt eternally long when I was itching to get to the viewing site
Astro-James
Aaaand we're back.
Taking pictures of pictures
39-A
Falcon 9 venting oxygen!
The rear of the grandstands
All 9 Merlin engines have ignited, let's get going!
Liftoff, we have a liftoff!
Thaicom 8 lumbers off the pad
Clear of the strongback
And the Falcon 9 has cleared the tower!
That is a beautiful sight
It rises so slowly at first
Gaining altitude
The bright orange flame characteristic of RP-1 burning rockets
So cool to see the landing legs on there
Meanwhile, the launch pad seems so desolate
The Falcon has started leaving a contrail!
Building up a contrail, tracing out its trajectory
And the contrail stops
I made this one black and white to better show the octaweb pattern of the engines
So far away
And there's engine burnout
The contrail is already getting all torn up by high level winds
Normal clouds and rocket clouds
Let's go home
We did it!
Oh yeah, there's a moon tree here!
