Space X Falcon 9 Lift Off

Today, May 22 made a mark in the history in Cape Canaveral. The picture below is the successful rocket launch of the SPACE X's Falcon 9, the first private vessel heading to the International Space Station carrying food and supply for those currently in the ISS. The launch took place in Space Launch Complex-40 at Florida’s Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. We were looking at the direction of Cape Canaveral Air Force Station and listening on the radio too. The on-time lift-off occurred after a smooth countdown and we watched this beautiful rocket lift off. The picture below is where we always went to watch the shuttle lift off. This was taken in another time (April 17-Shuttle Discovery piggyback moment).We were at the boat dock along Indian River just across the Cape Canaveral area. The weather is nice. The Falcon 9 carried SpaceX’s Dragon capsule, embarking a historic flight to the ISS. This is a demonstration flight and Dragon is expected to do the on-orbit maneuvers, rendezvous capabilities and vehicle performance.Few people came here and mostly locals. The tiny building at the center of the picture below is a building in Kennedy Space Center- NASA and further right is the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.I am using my Blackberry phone and I only took two pictures. I hope this test will be a great success.
