Image Details:

We took the two hour drive down to Canaveral National Seashore to see Artemis-1 sitting on Pad 39B one week before launch on the 29th. It was a super hot, humid Florida August afternoon so the Heat Shimmer kind of got us on the focus. Still an impressive look and I felt compelled to layer in the target of this first, unmanned mission back to the moon.
