Space Shuttle

Wooo! Look what we saw from our backyard on Sunday evening!
( We are a little over 50 miles to Cape Canaveral)

The Space Shuttle Discovery, to Deliver Solar Arrays to ISS (STS-119)

Discovery lifted off at 7:43 p.m. EDT
Discovery soaring into the darkening sky over the Florida coast

Cloud trail left in the sky...

How exciting! You got to see history in the making! You seem to live in a very exciting place - bears and space shuttles! Not many dogs get to see those.
lots of love

Very cool. We have never seen the Shuttle take off, but it sounds like a cool thing.

Nibbles Treats said...

So exciting! Our mom has told us stories about the space shuttle, especially the sound it makes when it makes the rare landing back in Florida. She lived in FL for 11 years and has seen the trail lots of times. Beautiful pictures! Thanks for sharing!

Wow! The space shuttle. How exciting! And thanks for dropping by my blog. I've been meaning to say hello for a while, but have been a bit wary 'cos my human Gail has a thing for huskies so if she sees too many pictures I get jealous. But the space shuttle post was safe enough!
Cheers, Hamish.

That's so beautiful! Worth getting up early or staying up late to see!

Your pal,

Mom and Dad went up to Titusville to see it - Dad took a great movie and some really nice pictures. Mom said every launch is spectacular in it's own way, but the colors of this one really were amazing! We think the noises are scary.

That is so cool! My mom loves space related stuff and would love to be able to look outside and see the space shuttle. It's her dream to go watch a launch someday.

Thanks for sharing those pics!

Wooo. You're so lucky. I have to stay up way past my bed time to catch that on CNN ...

I love on the far side of the planet. Right by the equator.

Licks and Wags,

My momma would love to be able to see that in person. Too cool.

If my three dogs saw something like that, they would think aliens were invading their backyard.
