Guests look on from the terrace of Operations Support Building II as space shuttle Endeavour launches from pad 39A on the STS 130 mission early Monday, Feb. 8, 2010, at Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Fla. Endeavour and its crew will deliver to the International Space Station a third connecting module, the Italian-built Tranquility node and the seven-windowed cupola, which will be used as a control room for robotics. The mission will feature three spacewalks. Photo Credit: (NASA/Paul E. Alers)
The shuttle Endeavor just lifting off the gantry. It is always spectacular to watch a night launch.
Shuttle Endeavor just clearing the top of the gantry, about 5-6 seconds after ignition.
Clearing the Gantry, it's on it's way!
