A news worthy reader image...


It's not often (ever actually) that I go to our Flickr group and see relevant, news worthy images posted there... until today.

But let me backup just a bit.

Last night I was watching the national news (which I tend to do less and less as it's just too darn frustrating) and they showed video of the space shuttle piggy backed on a 747 and it was on it's last flight, cruising by many of the important landmarks in Washington DC.

Fast forward to this morning, and I am checking out the most recent images posted on our Flickr group and low and behold, a shot taken yesterday of the space shuttle as it buzzed DC.

That was pretty cool.

Thanks Chance for posting the image for our group to see and folks, be sure to check out his Flickr photostream right here.

Thanks so much for the hat tip! It was awesome to see it fly nearly right over my head.

NASA's got some great photos on their Flickr stream: http://www.flickr.com/photos/nasahqphoto/

For the curious: Nikon D90, 70-300mm (racked out, of course!)
