An extended-exposure image shows the Cassini spacecraft streaking through the early morning sky over the Cape Canaveral Air Station, with the help of the Titan IVB/Centaur launch vehicle. The successful launch at 4:43 a.m. EDT, October 15, 1997 sent the Cassini spacecraft and accompanying Huygens Probe on a historic seven-year journey to the ringed planet.
