Space Shuttle Launch March 15, 2009

I know I should be blogging about something substantial like our cross country train trip, visiting with Kyle, my birthday at Epcot…

Instead I want to share these photos. About 45 minutes ago the Space Shuttle Discovery launched from Cape Canaveral. Justin and I watched the launch from our driveway. Even though we’re about an hour away from Kennedy Space Center we had a clear view of the launch.
I can’t describe how amazing it is to watch a live shuttle launch. It’s inspiring and beautiful and your heart kind of skips a beat as it’s happening.
So we watched the huge fireball zoom through the sky until the shuttle was nothing but a bright white dot up in outer space.

    Wow! You are very lucky to be able to see such a sight, even though you were over an hour away. Treasure that moment it because there aren’t too many more missions left to go!
