STS-131, Space shuttle Discovery, launches from Kennedy Space Center in the early morning hours of April 5, 2010 producing an unusually large and beautiful coma-like tail.

"Living in central Florida," says Ledford, "shuttle launches were always one of my favorite subjects to photograph. Never before had I seen a shuttle produce such a spectacular gas trail. In this shot, moments before booster separation, Discovery looked like a comet producing a massively beautiful coma-like tail as it streaked across the early dawn sky."
