Default Historic 4th of July

We went out in the Nordic to watch the Space Shuttle launch, man it was beautiful launch and day! NASA has never launched a shuttle on our nation's birthday, so that was the historic part...
Here are some shots!
Hope everyone had great 4th,
Dean

Watcning the Shuttle always makes me proud t be an American. Seeing it go up on the 4th of July just makes it that much more special. I hope they have a safe flight and a safe return.

Good to see Discovery back in flight! Wasn't in FL but watched it on TV. More pics and video feeds from floridatoday.com & nasa.gov complete coverage.
