Discovery's Final Flight

Anyone keeping track of Discovery and the ISS?

There's been some awesome ground based photography of the two together:

http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/ba...rom-the-ground

And some "video" shortly before they docked:
http://legault.perso.sfr.fr/STS-133.html

This website will show you where and when you can see them from where you live: (or nearly any other satellite you can think of)

And finally for the uber space geek, live coverage at NASA TV:

Re: Discovery's Final Flight

Not sure if any of the above links mention it but here's the Flickr page for one of the astronauts on the ISS that he updates from space. He has some really awesome photos of Discovery.

Re: Discovery's Final Flight

Got a chance to get outside and see it last night.

Discovery/ISS passed over Calgary nearly directly overhead.

I was a bit worried I'd miss it: We had snow all day long, but the weather cleared up just in time for the flyby.
