Space Shuttle Launch Nov. 14, 2008 Chap Percival Image taken: Nov. 14, 2008 Location: Titusville, FL Details: The waning gibbous moon rose behind the launch pad an hour before launch. As the Endeavour rose it passed in front of the Moon from our location. It continued to rise and the exhaust plume covered part of the Moon. I used a Kodak Z612 on automatic. ©2013, SpaceWeather.com -- This site is penned daily by Dr. Tony Phillips.
