Shuttle Discovery's final launch on February 24, 2011.

The shuttle disappeared behind the clouds after the final shot in this series. I could not see it too well through the viewfinder (just looked like a bright blob of light). But when I downloaded the images to the computer that night, I was pleasantly surprised to see that I caught the two SRBs separating from the main fuel tank.

Awesome experience!
