...the Space Shuttle!! One of the many privileges of living here in FL is the VERY close proximity that we have to the Kennedy Space Center! Every so often, the Shuttle goes up (of course) and we can see it from pretty much wherever we are: our backyard, the local mall, the interstate... It's so much fun to watch, even if the traffic is absolute GRIDLOCK around the time of the launch! People from all over the area come to our little city to see the launch. It's so much fun, and everything *rumbles* when it goes up. My favorite part, though, is when the Shuttle comes back into the earth's atmosphere and the HUGE sonic booms make you jump like you've been shot! It's always a surprise and always makes me laugh - it really startles you! Anway, I went to a local McDonald's here in Titusville and watched the launch from the riverfront. The pics are a little fuzzy (I would love to get a higher-tech camera!) and it was a bit hazy and cloudy, but what the heck - they're cool, anyway!

This looks fun. I got to watch one of the shuttles land at Edwards AFB several years ago. It was cool even though we weren't close up.

I've seen ONE shuttle landing, and it was kind of boring... It looked just like a regular plane landing, and it was far away so difficult to see. The Sonic BOOM! is what makes the landings so much fun, I think! :o) But really, the whole thing is really amazing.
