Via Conservative_VW, a very cool photo of the Space Shuttle Atlantis launch from the view of the International Space Station. Thoughts?
I posted a MUST READ article on the Wallops Island facility located on the Eastern Shore of Virginia where the rocket was launched at this link.

I spent Saturday in Ocean City, MD and I am a little upset about missing Friday night’s NASA LADEE rocket launch at the Wallops Island facility. I heard you could see it from lower Ocean City and the boardwalk. Here’s a great read on Popular Mechanics about the spaceport on the Island. Visit this link to read it.
Via Andrew Malcolm @ IBD, An amazing shot from NASA of Nemo, New England’s blizzard of 2013 from a satellite in outer space. An epic storm to say the least. Praying for the folks up north to be safe. Click on the image for a full size look.
Some stunning shots of Endeavour’s final journey can be found at this link on CNN. Must click and take a look!
Very cool. Looks way bigger up in space than it does on the TV screen.

It’ll come close and will be moving really fast.
Space.com has posted some tips on how you can make sure not to miss it. The best one being (which is what I’m gonna do since I don’t have a telescope) is to follow the asteroid’s coordinates at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory Solar System Dynamics Web site, which keeps up an Asteroid Watch to detect, track and characterize potentially hazardous asteroids.
