Actually, this photo isn't from the space station. It's from a chase plane.

Seemed a little low to me, too. Thanks for the correction.

Nice photo, though.

Yeah this was on as being from the space station, but in the comments it was agree'd that it wasn't. "From the chase plane that takes images of the Shuttle to check for any problems."

Please fix the headline -- 'from chase plane high above the launch' would work.

People are still propagating the mistaken info, it's like the mistaken AP story lede 'sea level rise of 80 ft. by 2100' error, people love to repeat this stuff.
