  Title: STS-54 Endeavour, OV-105, rises above Florida landscape during KSC liftoff
  Description:
  STS-54 Endeavour, Orbiter Vehicle (OV) 105, rises into the morning sky
  above  the Florida landscape after liftoff from a Kennedy Space Center
  (KSC) Launch  Complex (LC) Pad 39B at 8:59:30 am (Eastern Standard Time
  (EST)). The entire  launch pad area is covered in an exhaust cloud as
  OV-105, atop the external  tank (ET) and flanked by two solid rocket
  boosters (SRBs), heads skyward. The  glow of the SRB firings is reflected
  in a nearby waterway.  Grass and tree  stumps appear in the foreground and
  the sound supression water system tank  appears at the right.
