CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla — Providing a strong showing for itself, United Launch Alliance’s Delta IV medium rocket thundered off of Cape Canaveral Air Force Station’s Space Launch Complex 37 (SLC-37) at the opening of its launch window at 8:27 p.m. EDT Friday, May 24. In so doing, it returned the launch vehicle to service after an issue cropped up during the Delta IV’s previous launch. Unique angles, incredible imagery, and an epic return to flight were all part of a day’s work.

The normal viewing locations the media are normally taken to for launch viewing were unavailable. As such, they were taken to the camera mound near the iconic Astronaut Beach House at Cape Canaveral. Coupled with still and video imagery from SLC-37, we think you’ll agree this launch stands out.
