Shuttle Daze
I was one of the lucky people who got to see the last Atlantis Shuttle launch in person.

This pavilion was the location of AMANDA STEVENSON PHOTO STUDIO at Space View Park.

The day before......kinda looks like a rocket.

This is the Discovery Shuttle, now used at the Kennedy Visitor Center. The compartment for the astronauts is tiny compared to the rest of the ship where the goods are stored for the Space Station drop off.

This is where everything happens.

Star Trek impersonator at the Kennedy Visitor Center, Beam me up, Scotty.

T-12:34:04: The night before the launch they lite up the ISS tower.

T-9 and counting: I made my way through the crowd to photograph all the people how had been waiting for 24hrs. to see the launch up close!

Blast off! The final mission of Atlantis will return in 12 days after delivering 4 tons of supplies (including one year of food and provisions).
