Bubble and star forming region in the LMC

NGC 2014 (Henize 55) is a cluster of hot, young stars, merged within the brightest part of the nebula. On top of the cluster a single star has begun the process of dispersing strong stellar winds producing a bubble like shaped nebula known as NGC 2020.

While I was in Florida last week, NASA launched a new communication satellite on an unmanned Atlas V rocket to stay in touch with its space station astronauts and relay more Hubble telescope images.

I heard about this launch on the flight over to Florida and was extremely excited so I rented a car and drove myself down to Cape Canaveral the next day. I talked to a couple retired NASA engineers that I met at the Space View Park while scouting locations to photograph from and they recommended some good spots. After scouting all the suggested areas, I decided on shooting from the Max Brewer Memorial Bridge.

The bridge was the windiest spot unfortunately, but was able to stabilize my camera enough for this 93 second exposure.

Once the rocket lit up, I immediately stepped away from my cameras and watched it disappear from Earth’s atmosphere. It was such an amazing and unforgettable first experience.

More photos can be found on my website:
