Drove out to Titusville to see the Space Shuttle Discovery’s final launch.. Got there just in the nick of time! Literally as we were walking up to the crowd of people did it take off.. I ran further up to get a few shots.. luckily I got one pretty well focused.. yes, I need to clean the sensor on my camera (a mirror lens yields donut dust spots!)
a minute later.. (auto-stitching worked pretty well on these next two shots!)
30 seconds later..
3 minutes later people started leaving..
It took us over an hour to circle around out of the parking lot to just a hundred feet from where we were actually parked (and at least 3, if not 4, hours to get back to Brendan’s place in Orlando)! Got some nice shots of the sky as the sun set when we were waiting..
