Space Shuttle Liftoff As Seen From Above

These images may not be new to you since they have been in circulation since 2006 in viral emails. However, these images are new to me and I thought I’d share them since they have yet to grace the front page of this site. These two images were taken in 2006 by a WB-57 chase plane Initially, it was thought that these images were taken from the ISS or International Space Station, but it turns out that was simply a rumor. At any rate, enjoy!
