Shuttle's Last Ride FZ200 @ 600MM

Today's last shuttle ferry was a disappointment. Gray skies, ground fog, and a 747 pilot who did NOT give us the "last show" were led to expect. Literally THOUSANDS of people were beachside all the way down to Melbourne Beach...and our intrepid captain decided to turn around directly over Patrick AFB! SOME of those fans may have gotten a glimpse through binoculars, but it was certainly not the itinerary of the last shuttle ferry flight.

Colors were very muted due to the aforementioned lighting (it was also just at sunrise)
and the target so far away I had to use full zoom.

Not much to look at but, here's a sample.
