READ THE RULES! This challenge is all about interpretation: I named it with the title of a popular song (by Elton John), and it will be up to the entrants to determine what the song means to them - and how they can express that with a photo. **The link to the lyrics is at the top of the rules**

one of the last to take 'rocket men' up from florida. this was unique as the shuttle was in the sunlight at this point and the vapor trails lit up nicely.
