STS-120 from the VAB roof

This personal video was recorded (by myself) from the roof of the Vehicle Assembly Building, 525 feet above the Kennedy Space Center and 3.2 miles away from Launch Pad 39A.

Turn your volume up to experience a launch as it looks and sounds in person from a different angle! The camera was on a very wide-angle setting, and thus the launch and smoke trail appear a bit smaller and further away than it really was.
