For those who would like a small description so they can choose whether or not to follow a link, they are to two pictures of a space shuttle launch taken from (very) high altitude, but not from space as I had seen them erroneously reported on a different site.

The WB57 high altitude plane,from which the pics were taken, has a ceiling of 65000ft.

I received some pictures recently of some ice sculptures in Harbin, Northern China. It seems its a regular event to made some wonderful ice sculptures.
