Space shuttle sighting
THE most amazing run this morning! At 7:40am, the space shuttle (aboard a 747 and with an F-16 in close attendance) flew right over my head just a few thousand feet up. The noise and the view were both incredible. I found myself standing alone on a deserted street whooping at the sky and beaming from ear to ear.
This photo is from our local paper as it passed over downtown. I had a much closer encounter!
