Ready for another Where In The Universe Challenge? Here’s #138! Take a look and see if you can name where in the Universe this image is from. Give yourself extra points if you can name the spacecraft, telescope or instrument involved with this image. We provide the image today, but won’t reveal the answer until tomorrow. This gives you a chance to mull over the image and provide your answer/guess in the comment section. And Please, no links or extensive explanations of what you think this is — give everyone the chance to guess.
UPDATE: Answer now posted below!
This is the launch of space shuttle Discovery on an earlier launch – STS-70, back in 1995. It is a side view (much like the view that our photographer Alan Walters had from Astronaut Road for STS-133 last week — see our gallery of launch images), so that’s why only one SRB plume is visible. Of course STS-133 launched last week on Discovery’s final mission to space, a very historic page in space history.
