Last week, I was invited to attend a NASA weather balloon launch by one of my friends who had scored a sweet internship with them over the summer. I drove to Livingston, MT's airport (really just a landing strip) a couple hours before the launch to catch the sunrise. These images are a mixture of the sunrise and the weather balloon launch. It was interesting to photograph a sunrise, but even more fascinating to see this launch happen. It brought back childhood dreams of wanting to become an astronaut!
