Image of the Day: Virgin Galactic's SpaceShipTwo in flight

Photographer Bill Deaver didn't use fancy equipment to snap this excellent photo of Virgin Galactic's SpaceShipTwo, just a handheld Nikon D90 with a Tamron 18-250mm lens. Deaver said in an interview with SPACE.com: "I've been trying to get that shot for some time and this morning the 'stars' lined up just right!"

His patience definitely paid off during the April 3 test, because this image looks perfect; almost too perfect. But it's the real thing and we can't wait to see if Deaver delights us with more incredible images of SpaeShipTwo in flight.
