My dh saw it land. He said it was huge, almost as large as the plane that transported it.

bana - I think you mean Endeavour.
Awesome! I was in the deYoung Museum - 9th floor of the tower. Very cool.

thanks, rice... you caught me calling it 'Enterprise' sooner than i did. mouth (aka typing fingers) engaged before brain in gear. a typical senior moment.)
and glad you got to see it.

Ha - When I read Enterprise - I first thougt of the carrier Enterprise. Then, duh, I realized it had to be the Endeavour.
Lucky for me, I was scheduled to be in the museum this am, so getting to the tower was a no brainer. I was among a group of vols, staff and visitors. We were all very impressed.

Bana great photo, love the flag in the corner. Makes it picture perfect.
Isn't it awesome to see such a piece of history!!! I'm so glad that you got to see in person vs. watching on tv. There is no comparison.

TFS! It would be very exciting to see this in person!

yes i was lucky to see it.. and am glad i went over to see it in person vs watching it on tv.
i met a man with two of the cutest little dogs.. 6 mos old terriers. i was so busy taking pictures of them that i laughed about having a dead battery by the time the shuttle flew by. they were so lively that it was almost impossible to get a picture that wasn't blurry.
the best shot i got was in my own shadow. call me the 'oops' photographer for the things i don't notice till i see the picture. and for some shots, there are no do-overs.
