Not the most amazing image, but my first of the Space Shuttle in orbit.

Space Shuttle Discovery on its way to the International SpaceStation, 03-15-'09

A little while after the launch, an interesting cloud developed. It was clearly related to the launch.
Therefore, it must have been several miles high and very large.

Well after sunset, it was still visible, glowing an eerie luminous blue
