Space Shuttle Launch Pad Lightning Strike

I was hoping to have yesterday’s or today’s image be of the Space Shuttle mission STS-127 lifting off, but the launch has been delayed (following earlier delays back in June).

The Saturday launch postponement was due to a lightning strike Friday evening on the launch pad.

Check out this image NASA’s cameras captured of the strike:

Here’s hoping Endeavour finally, and safely, gets off the ground tonight.
