Yep it was awesome. Sad to see the Shuttle leave the "Space Coast".

At least we still have the Rocket launches pretty regularly

Luckily I was rousing from my sleep and the TV timer kicked in, showing the news coverage by the BBC of this flight. I would guess this is the last time we will ever see a Shuttle in-flight?

During the 3hr 40min flight the transfer will also be flying over central Washington along the Mall, before finally landing at IAD (Washington Dulles) for its final resting place at the Smithsonian.

Sad to see it go, end of an era. To bad Obama snubbed Houston I think that's where she belongs, or at least one of them.
