Space shuttle Endeavor blasts off!

I just witnessed the space shuttle take off (for the umpteenth time) but when I went out to watch it a fantastic full moon was right where the path of the shuttle would take it!! I immediately got my Kodak digital and my tripod, ran out back and set up for a shot...t-minus 90 seconds! I set the camera for 16 second exposure auto everything and did a test shot...looked OK so I waited. Soon I saw a glimmer through the clouds and clicked the shutter. As soon as it was done I did another just as it was passing over the face of the moon-wow. Couldn't see it but the trail appeared above and to he left of the moon.

Here is the first shuttle exposure Fri Nov 14, 2008 (c 2008 Rickey Taylor)
