PHOTOS: Views of launch from the press site

These snapshots of the Antares test launch were taken about 2 miles away at the press viewing site looking across the marsh toward the seaside launch pad.

The Antares rocket soared into a crystal clear sky, remaining visible to observers for nearly four minutes. The 13-story rocket launched from Wallops Island, Va., at 5 p.m. EDT (2100 GMT) Sunday.
