LRO Launch - More Views

NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) and Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite (LCROSS) launched at 5:32 p.m. EDT Thursday, June 18th, aboard an Atlas V rocket from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida. The LRO satellite will relay more information about the lunar environment than any other previous mission to the moon.

This page contains several viewpoints of the LRO/LCROSS launch. The first video shows the project team at Goddard Space Flight Center and their preparations for and reaction to the launch. The remaining videos are ten different individual camera feeds of the launch captured by Kennedy Space Center.

To see the full multicamera launch sequence, as well as videos from the time leading up to the launch, see entry #10443.
