Last weekend I traveled to Florida to photograph the launch of the Parker Solar Probe from Cape Canaveral. Propelled by a Delta IV Heavy launch vehicle, the probe is on its way to becoming not only the fastest human object ever, but also the closest human object to orbit the sun. It was a blast to watch it take off live and in person (pardon the pun). The launch coincided with the Perseid Meteor Shower (yes, that is a shooting star in the center of the frame - make a wish!).
A future post, when I've recovered from a long drive and many sleepless nights, will include more photos and the backstory of how I came to be standing on the beach at Jetty Park, Port Canaveral, photographing this historic launch.
