What I wished I'd seen...

My next-door neighbor sent me this picture from a friend of hers, "Lyn," who lives further south (and closer to the launch pad) than we do. It confirmed for both of us that what we saw (even if it was too small to get a photo) was indeed Discovery. I'm glad I went on the NASA site to listen to their radio transmissions until they did the fire-up to go out of orbit and into space to catch up with the Space Station. There is another evening launch in May, if it goes as scheduled, and I think I will make the effort to get closer so I can enjoy the bragging rights of having "been there," at least once.
