The Shuttle Took Off
The Space Shuttle Discovery took off on Monday morning just before 6:30 and it was an incredible sight. I don't know if it's because there are only a few more of these to go up, but I think this was the most spectacular one I've ever seen. The sky was soooooooo clear and the humidity was very low. We're about 60 miles from the Cape and my little point and shoot isn't all that fancy but we were on our front porch anyway. This one was just as it cleared the trees...just after I took this one, we heard a very loud rumble...it was like a sonic boom that just kept going. They said because the air was so clear we were able to hear it...that was a first. There were places around Orlando that the windows shook...it was amazing. Quite a way to start the week!
