Arrival At JFK

Valley Stream, NY (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: What a day. Last day of state math testing. My students finished at 10:45. My school is not to far from where I take my sunset photos. Everyone told me to leave for me to go to the park. It was just about my lunchtime so I drove over to the park and just as I got there, the shuttle was making its land. I made it just in time. OMG. What a sight to behold.

Wish I could have seen it... it doesn't seem possible we will not see this generation of shuttle head off into space again. Well done, NASA! Waiting for next generation of shuttle!

Awesome shot! At first I thought you had to have been in another plane, then I read your comments. Glad you were able to catch the mmoment. And living in West Texas, I understand the holding onto to things in the wind! :) Thanks for sharing!

Three years ago, one June morning, I was in my garden, heard a loud airplane, looked up and there was the shuttle on top of a 747 at about 2000 feet. I shouted and waved. It was returning to Fl after landing at Edwards and was doing a flyby at the NASA's facilities at White Sands.

It's a totally awesome sight. Thanks for the memories, NASA.

The wind was whipping at around 25mph. Trying to hold onto my camera and stay steady was an interesting endeavor.
