CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla — AmericaSpace’s team of photographers worked tirelessly to produce stunning images from the recent launch of a United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket carrying the second of the United States military’s Space Based Infrared System Geosynchronous (SBIRS GEO-2) spacecraft. With remote camera (stay tuned for a video feature regarding these soon) experts such as Alan Walters, John Studwell, Julian Leek, Jeff Seibert, and Mike Howard—we knew we would gain some stunning imagery. However, we had no idea just how amazing.

The day prior to launch, Alan Walters visited the camera mound that resides between Cape Canaveral Air Force Station’s Space Launch Complex 41 (SLC-41) and the famous Astronaut Beach House. He placed one of the remote camera boxes that AmericaSpace is producing at this site. We are constructing a number of these boxes in order to produce high-quality photographs and video from the launches that take place at the Cape on a nearly monthly basis.
