NASA OA-6 Engine Shot - Atlas V

Regular price $23.99

On March 23rd, 2016, NASA launched an Orbital ATK (Now Northrup Grumman) Cygnus spacecraft to the ISS on top of an Atlas V rocket. This was a unique mission, as it featured Orbital's Cygnus spacecraft on an Atlas rocket instead of Orbital's own Antares rocket, due to the Antares being on hold after a failure in 2014. It took off from SLC-41 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.

This launch was my first time seeing an Atlas V, and it was my first time seeing a launch from the roof of the Vehicle Assembly Building. This was shot with a Canon 5D MKIII and a 135mm F2.0L lens from about 1000 feet away (304 meters) using a sound triggered camera.
