All of a sudden I heard 2 BIG Bangs. I thought something had hit the house.
Nope it was the sonic boom of the shuttle. First time that I can remember this ever happenning here as we are an hour south of the Cape.
We have experienced it before at the Cape. We were there for the day when they announced the shuttle was landing, it was one of the early secret missons. What a sight to see. It looks as if they are going to crash the decent is so steep.

We always hear the double sonic BOOM here in Lakeland, when they land at the cape, but I didn't hear it today! Perhaps they flew an odd pattern today because of prevailing wind or something? Anyway, I'm always happy to hear the noise, and know that they're almost home safely.
