The launch of the 14th SpaceX Resupply Mission to the International Space Station was scheduled at 4:30 PM.

In the foreground of this image, you can see a line of Rube-Goldberg designed boxes designed to protect camera gear from weather and rocket exhaust. In the top right, the sun is partially blocked by some cumulus clouds.
