JOHN KRAUS PHOTOS

Out-of-this-world spaceflight imagery

April 14th, 2018: A United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket launches from SLC-41 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station at 7:13 A.M. EDT, delivering AFSPC-11 to orbit. This launch occurred the night of my high school's senior prom, which resulted in the perfect pre-prom photoshoot with my girlfriend Danielle, as we were already dressed up and ready to go. I set up a camera on a tripod behind us, which fired images as we watched the launch before heading off to prom! It was an amazing way to begin a perfect evening. I also had a camera on a roof 25 miles south of the launchpad, which was set on a timer and shot images of the liftoff.
