I was in Monterey Bay, California and heard rumors of a space shuttle in southern California. I didn’t think it would fly right over my head to get to it’s final resting destination, but that is what ultimately happened.
The space shuttle was on it’s way to retire, and started out from the air force base, flying over Monterey Bay and circling the state so the public could view it.
On my way to take pictures, there were a ton of people watching the sky, I thought that was odd, so I ask why. I was told the space shuttle would appear soon. The next thing I thought
was, am I in heaven or what? So I loaded up my camera and waited with everyone else.
It took another 20 minutes and there was a dot appearing in the sky, everyone could see it but me. Soon enough, the dot became visible as a plane, then the plane with the space shuttle appeared over my head. It was simply amazing, I felt like it was so close I could touch it. I have included my space shuttle gallery in a link here.
What I liked particularly nice were the two birds following the shuttle the entire time I photographed. They are hard to see in this picture, but they show up in many of the pictures I took.
