A bittersweet, but proud day here in Brevard county~God bless the fine folks who have taken part in this program, and all space exploration over the years! Cheers and Godspeed to STS-135, the 33rd flight of Atlantis! Proud to live on the Space Coast!

The new A. Max Brewer bridge was literally packed with people!

Peeking through the trees at the folks next to me. I staked out behind the lift station at the end of South Street.

The weather improved minute by minute...

Almost time...everyone was SO excited! It was really neat to hear (one last time) as parents told their children "Wait till you see the smoke, then you'll hear the rumble!" : )

Liftoff! Great view for the folks in the boats, huh?!

Into a cloud,

and back out again!

I love the contrail, it's my second favorite part!

The last crowds T'ville will see for awhile...with hopes that the future holds great possibilities!
