Shelf Cloud over VAB

Posted in Astronomy, Space Shuttle at 6:39 pm by Rebekah

WOW what an INCREDIBLE day it has been! I have much to say and many pictures to go through, but here is a great shot of a beautiful shelf cloud near the VAB just a bit ago…we had a strong thunderstorm with quite a bit of lightning move through, so the retraction of the Rotating Service Structure was delayed until 8:30…hopefully no later. So far the launch is still a go, but there is a chance for storms. Let’s hope they aren’t until later in the day…or they move through earlier and cause no problem!
