Launch of STS-131

Photos by Wolf

STS-131 launch on April 5, 2010 at 6:21 am. This sequence was taken from Bradenton, Florida.  The wide pattern that the shuttle made as started to arc downrange was due to ice in the upper atmosphere. The last shots in this set are the noctilucent clouds left over from the hydrogen in the shuttles exhaust.
