Rocket launches look best from afar and above

Saturday, August 01, 2009

Photographs of rocket launches almost always look like this in the news:

That's not bad, but I always think those images are missing a bit of perspective. All the fireworks and whatnot around the launch pad make it look kind of like just an explosion, and very connected to the Earth.

My favourite view is always from afar, and from a fair distance away. This is the best photograph IMO of the last Falcon 1 launch.

Much better. You can see another similar photo to this one here, but with a Shuttle launch instead.

(Falcon 1 images come from here)
