Note: Flickr recently went through a massive server transition, and portions of the service are still being worked on. Among the problems is that mosaic thumbnails on Collections are not visible, which means my primary page here for showing groupings by year are missing those thumbnails. The links do work—only the thumbnails are missing, so you can still navigate into a year to view those photos.

Spectacular launch just after sundown. After a few moments, the orange beams from the sun illuminated the upper portion of the smoke trail, and then turned white as the shuttle climbed even higher.
