NASA Shuttle Flyover

My girlfriend and I went to the National Mall to watch the NASA shuttle, Discovery, fly over head. It was amazing to watch something that has traveled so far and is so historic to be so close. Watching it fly by reminded me of being a kid looking up at the stars and hoping one day I could go into outer space myself.
Thank you NASA for giving me the opportunity to be a kid again.
