NASA's Banana Creek VIP Shuttle Launch Viewing Area at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida
Hi All, Thought you would find this pic interesting. I witnessed the launch of Endeavour early this morning and was greeted by a cool site when I arrived at NASA's VIP viewing site on Banana Creek. It was as though the Gods were watching over Endeavour as it sat perched on the launch pad in the early twilight hours. Readily visible above the pad are Mercury, Venus and Jupiter. Off to the left of Venus, a mere pinprick in this photo is Mars. Too cool for words. Cheers, Tom Cocchiaro NH Astronomical Society
