Shuttle Endeavour Launch and then some.

One could not have asked for a more perfect weather forecast for a launch. Driving 8 hours from Atlanta to Titusville and the Kennedy Space Center (KSC) to view one of the last shuttle launches. Everything was a GO for launch except for one little leak, a hydrogen leak developed as the rockets were being fueled. Thus scrubbing the launch. Hey I'm always ready for a sunrise, especially in Florida.

The moon and stars, a clear morning.
Sunrise just north of KSC.
Sunrise on the coast.

Good morning sunshine.

One of the many locals on hand to view the sunrise.

Space shuttle Endeavour on the launch pad. Ok! Now back to Atlanta via Tybee Island for dinner. I drove 4 hours north to Tybee to see some sights and...
Tybee Island Lighthouse.
...You guessed it, a sunset on Tybee Island. The sun is setting over the South Channel River, just SW of the Savannah River.

Goodnight sunshine.

Time to head to the Coke pavilion, after this photo was taken it was reported in the AJC, the Coke bottle will be dismantled and replaced. After learning this I decided I must return before the bottle is taken down.
