Lighting Strikes on Space Shuttle Launch Pad 39A 7/10/09 (via NASAtelevision)

Lightning strikes on Launch Pad 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center, Fla., are captured by an Operational Television Camera. Eleven lightning strikes occurred within 0.3 miles of the pad during a thunderstorm July 10 as space shuttle Endeavour was prepared for launch. Mission managers delayed Endeavour’s planned liftoff July 11 as a precaution to allow engineers and safety personnel time to analyze data and retest systems on the orbiter and solid rockets boosters. The next launch attempt for the STS-127 mission is planned for 7:13 p.m. EDT Sunday, July 12.

Great photo of Kennedy Space Center around the scrub time of sunday’s launch, again for weather. Don’t worry, they’ll be trying again monday.

Noctilucent clouds

Noctilucent clouds are so high in the atmosphere that they are lit by the sun after sunset.
