Here she is, on the pad yesterday before they pulled the gantry around! Two views - the better angle was from 6.5 miles, the closer view was not such a good angle - c'est la vie!





Launch is Nov 1st - Discovery's last flight Sad

The water makes the difference I think,Paul. It is a better shot as you say.
