Yikes! Lightning Strike Near KSC Launchpad


That was close! A fixed camera at launchpad B at Kennedy Space Center (which is being torn down/modified) captured an amazing lightning strike earlier this week.

  1. It seems this camera is mounted to the diagonal lightning arrestor tower, microwave relay array bundle as we see in the background.


  2. I almost clicked the ‘like’ button above, then i remembered this is very close to Atlantis, and well, i don’t like that :/
    Pretty picture though 🙂

  3. I’d love to get a shot like that, but of course, I don’t think I’d be willing to get that close to do it 🙂
