Around here, it's not often you get the opportunity to see a space shuttle. And now that they're retiring the whole fleet, the flyover of Moffett Field and NASA Ames in Mountain View would be my very last chance. Although I couldn't quite fathom pulling the kids out of school for it (maybe I should've), I wasn't going to miss it myself.

The shuttle was late in arriving and appeared as a tiny blob in the hazy distance.

But it got closer and closer...
until the view from the freeway overpass where I stood was absolutely awesome. I knew I didn't want to miss it and now I know why.
And just like that, it turned towards Los Angeles and was gone...
