The brilliant exhaust from the solid rocket boosters and blue mach diamonds from the main engine nozzles mark the perfect launch of space Shuttle Atlantis.
Apollo 11 Launch
The Apollo 11 space vehicle rises to clear the launch tower at Kennedy Space Center's pad 39A. Liftoff occurred at 9:32 a.m. EDT, July 16, 1969. Crewmen Neil A. Armstrong, Michael Collins, and Edwin E. Aldrin, Jr. are speeding toward lunar orbit, from where Armstrong and Aldrin will attempt the first manned lunar landing.

This unused postcard was bought in 2010.
The bookmark is where you add the stamp, and when the receiver gets the postcard in the mail, they separate the bookmark from the card using the perforated lines. Brilliant!
