I have a contact in the space industry who forwarded me an email with some photos of the Atlantis Space Shuttle launch 9/9/06, viewed from an unsusal perspective.  Originally I posted they were shot from the ISS; but, a commenter below has provided a link suggesting they were taken from a NASA high altitude research aircraft.  I really don’t know; but, I thought the photos were pretty cool. And, for a change of posting pace, I’m posting them below.
