Thanks to someone on Reddit I discovered that the ULA has an amazing Flickr page with tons of high res images from all their launches.

Make great phone/desktop wallpapers.

I was able to attend a Shuttle launch - I'd love to be in attendance for a future one of these.

Pretty cool to get the rocket heading to the moon in the same shot.

When you are used to seeing space stuff move at thousands of kph it's interesting to see it is only going 450mph.

Early morning alert! Set alarm clocks.

Artemis 1 is scheduled to do a close flyby of the moon at around 5:45AM MT on Monday. It will be 130 kms above the moon's surface and preform a 2.5 minute engine burn to help position it for lunar orbit.

And now it is going slower than most vehicles on the Deerfoot!

It gets confusing because the speed has to be relative to a body. Like on the stream they just said itís going 619 MPH. Because itís now in relation to the moon. It wasnít actually ever going slower than something on Deerfoot, but relative to the earth it was.

This is only tangentially related to Artemis, as we spoke about it a little bit, but I met an astronaut the other day at a pub who had retired to Vancouver Island. I started a conversation with him after I overheard him saying he discovered VI from 180,000 feet and I thought that was a little odd. Turns out he was in NASA for fifty years and was in space 16 times. Cool guy.
