I was on my way to photograph at a park, kind of far from home (the Bluebirds if you are reading more) and so was on the road really early. I had completely forgotten about the shuttle launch, but I just happend to look out the window and saw the contrail from the launch. This was about 20 minutes after launch. Wish I would have looked up earlier! I am assuming that the top/closer bit is front lit by the moon and the lower/farther part is backlit by the yet to rise sun. anyway, its kind of cool.
