Recorded in Titusville, FL approximately eleven miles away from the launch pad, this shows the launch from the closest view point possible outside of Cape Canaveral.
This was the second to last launch of Columbia and was to upgrade and service the Hubble telescope. In the ten days they were in orbit they traveled 3.9 million miles and circled the Earth 165 times.
