Early Morning Shuttle Launch

The first of the last four Shuttle missions lifted off shortly before sunrise this morning; the sky was nice and clear, clear enough that we could see the boosters as they separated and fell away, resulting in this shot, where Discovery seems to be running away from a pair of scare quotes:

"No comment."
I still remember getting out of high school to watch some of the first Shuttle launches way back in the early 1980s. It's going to be weird not seeing those things take off anymore.
