Whether it’s your first time, or your 10th, witnessing a space shuttle launch is an awesome experience to capture with your camera. Unfourtunately the planned launch at Cape Canaveral, Florida today has been delayed and NASA officials are in a “hold” position. Nevertheless, if the weather clears and you are in the area, you might have a chance to capture a great photo of Shuttle Endeavour as it takes off for the International Space Station like Andrew LeCates did of Shuttle Atlantis on June 8, 2007 (above photo). So, if the weather improves and you are one of the lucky few to capture the launch, make sure you upload your photos to our Flickr pool. Otherwise, make sure you check back with us if the launch gets canceled and we will have another post about the next launch date and another chance to send us your photos.
