Shuttle Endeavor Night Launch

Drove up to Deltona to pick up my grandson Mikey after school and take him to see Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa, a movie he's been wanting to see ever since he saw the previews on TV. We had a good time together. He always make me happy to be with him.

Got back home to Orlando in time to see the likely last night-time shuttle launch at 7:55 EST. Even from my backyard 50 miles away from the Kennedy Space Center, it was spectacular as, from my viewpoint, the Endeavor arced over the beautiful full moon in a bright, fiery trail.

Jason took Mikey outside to see it, he loved it!

Night launches are beautiful and, if it's clear, you can still see the shuttle after it reaches orbit. But I always wanted to see one up close and personal. Guess I'm too late as usual.
