You don't have to be an astronaut... to see these are out of this world!

By
Real Estate Broker with Coldwell Banker Residential

A colleague of mine recently returned from Florida, and had a relative who worked at Cape Canaveral.  She saw scheduled to be there for the most recent lift-off of the Shuttle, but that particular launch was delayed, so she couldn't witness the launch in person.

But he did give her some photographs, that we ordinary plebians, we mere mortals rarely get to see.  Here are a few, and I'll share more over the next few days.  They are some truly remarkable images.

These photos are so good, they might have been taken by Richard Weisser.

Look at how hot the flames are coming from behind the shuttle... they're not yellow hot, or white hot... they're INVISIBLE hot ... till they cool down to BLUE!   Wow.

I thought you might enjoy them.

Alan, those are beautiful pictures of a truly amazing feat.

Thank you, my friend, for sharing them with us!

Now about that mere mortals and plebians remark.....Speak for yourself!!!

By the way, two of my favorites when using them in the context you did in your blog are "sheeple" and "troglodytes"

Wow, Alan, these are amazing! The third one is absolutely beautiful! Whoever took the photo must have been able to feel the heat, don't you think? I don't believe I would want to be floating ou there like that. Not something I aspire to, but glad someone else does! Thanks for these.
