Wordless Wednesday: July 13, 2011 ~ Final Shuttle Atlantis Launch

.
WORDLESS


Welcome to Wordless Wednesday..... I'm looking forward to to seeing all of your photos, so if you leave a comment, please leave your email address so I can come on over and take a look.
I was able to take these two photos off my balcony during the final launch of the Space Shuttle Atlantis on July 8th. No matter how many times I get to see it, I still get goose bumps. The thing that truly gets me is when it returns to earth and they break the sound barrier... the whole house shakes. =)

That's so cool that you got to see the launch! And even cooler that you get to feel the return.

That is amazing that you can see them launch from your balcony. And so cool that you will hear them return.

I forgot about the launch and I had a very disappointed 5 year old.

I spent a winter working at the KOA in Titusville, I think in 2002. We could see the rockets launch from the front yard of the office there, but I don't think they launched the shuttle while we were there. Cool pics!

Wish I could have seen it in person. It's kind of sad that this is the last space mission.
