There's never enough photos of shuttle launches or yummy astronaut breakfasts. But Trey Ratcliff's shot of the shuttle thundering through Florida's steel clouds is, by far, my favorite for today's lift-off.

It's amazingly beautiful and strange. It almost looks like the smoke is coming from above. Or like a weird nuclear mushroom. [StuckInCustoms]
