Most teenagers hate to see the summer end, but John Kraus has a particularly good reason to be unhappy about it: Going back to school means less time to shoot space launches.

He lives in Satellite Beach, Florida, just 30 minutes from Cape Canaveral and the Kennedy Space Center, and grew up attending NASA space camps and watching launches from home.

The sheer power that a rocket gives off when it launches is breathtaking, he says.

Photographer John Kraus Scott Murray

He bought his first DSLR in January, and captured a Falcon 9 rocket launch a one month later.

He s photographed more than 20 launches in all, and is a credentialed shooter for AmericaSpace.com.
