What A View!!

Hey Space Placers!

I hope those of you in the DC area took advantage of seeing Discovery and the International Space Station (ISS) fly over tonight as they were nearly directly overhead and very, very bright. I watched them flyover from George Mason University's Observatory with Dr. Geller, the Observatory's Director.

I took some pics of the observatory and got one of the flyover but it will take some processing as it is overexposed which it had to be to catch both spacecraft in the same frame. The crew was scheduled for their sleep period to begin just as they flew over.

Discovery is due to land at Kennerdy Space Center at 11:57 a.m. on Wednesday.

Glad I saw her and ISS two nights in a row.
