Lightning strikes on Launch Pad 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center, Fla., are captured by an Operational Television Camera. Eleven lightning strikes occurred within 0.3 miles of the pad during a thunderstorm July 10 as space shuttle Endeavour was prepared for launch. Mission managers delayed Endeavour’s planned liftoff July 11 as a precaution to allow engineers and safety personnel time to analyze data and retest systems on the orbiter and solid rockets boosters. The next launch attempt for the STS-127 mission is planned for 7:13 p.m. EDT Sunday, July 12.
