Was able to watch the shuttle for a number of minutes on approach to KSC. It was quite bright as it was low and was reflecting the sun as dawn was approaching. Came over Ft Myers and then Lake Okeechobee, so I got a great view. Even saw a bright meteorite before the shuttle. A safe end to the last journey. Thanks for all the memories and knowledge the program has generated and let's never forget the tragedies. Still perplexed how we could end the program without the private craft being operational.
