Totally by Accident * I was there as the Last US Space Shuttle Touched Down

Many of us who live in the DC area were treated to an incredible sight yesterday as the Space Shuttle Discovery made the last flight into DC.  I for one had tears in my eyes as I saw it circle past the house.  Turns out Wallace was in the area too.

You can thank the Obama administration for taking America out of Space Exploration. Once the leader now only GOD knows, who we are and what we stand for.

Cindy - thank you for the REblog - these are people stopped on Lee Jackson to view the landing.  Many of the area car dealer employees were on the dealership roofs.

There was some great news coverage for its flyby & landing in DC on CNN web, I watched it here in AZ.

It was emotional without being there.... I can only imagine seeing it "up close & personal".  Great Photo Wallace captured, Thanks so much for sharing it with all of us.

That's simply amazing to me! To think of all of the ingenuity that has transpired for that to happen is mind boggling.

Have an AWESOME evening!

That's a great picture, Cindy.  Wallace was in the right place at the right time.  I wish I had been in the area.  What a wonderful sight.
