rocket launch

Forsyth fire chief David Herndon captured this image of the Boeing CST-100 Starliner crew capsule as it sailed over Monroe County upon its launch from Cape Canaveral, Fla. at 6:36 a.m. on Dec. 20. The spacecraft was supposed to be in space for eight days, including a stop at the International Space Station, but the mission was reduced to three days after an error was discovered with the mission elapsed timer (MET) clock just 31 minutes into the flight.
