Antares Launch

The image above – click it for a larger version – showing the Antares launch over Washington DC was NASA’s Image of the Day recently. Little wonder, what a great shot, I wanted to share it in case you missed it.

Here’s the caption from NASA: The Northrop Grumman Antares rocket, with Cygnus resupply spacecraft onboard, is seen above the Thomas Jefferson Memorial in Washington, DC, on Nov. 17, 2018. The rocket launched from Pad-0A at NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia that morning. Northrop Grumman’s 10th contracted cargo resupply mission for NASA to the International Space Station will deliver about 7,400 pounds of science and research, crew supplies and vehicle hardware to the orbital laboratory and its crew.
