So I got up early today to hear the sonic boom made by the shuttle Atlantis making it's return trip to earth. It was rather faint, but still cool! Robert van Winkle was saying last night how he marvels over the fact that a mere 5 minutes after we hear the boom the shuttle lands in Cape Canaveral, hundreds of miles away! He's right; it is amazing and wonderful!!
Also tonight: a "total" lunar eclipse. I can't wait. I love days like today.
