Yesterday morning, I went to Cape Canaveral to photograph the NASA Delta II rocket launch headed to the moon.
The GRAIL (Gravity Recovery and Interior Laboratory) Mission sent two spacecrafts to orbit the moon and help answer how planets are formed.
Although I have photographed several space shuttles, this was my first time photographing a launch of an unmanned rocket. Having arriving at Jetty Park in Cape Canaveral so early in the morning, I also had opportunity to photograph the beautiful sunrise.
After the launch, I turned to my trusty iPhone to get that last photo of the smoke plume.
