Discovery Space Shuttle Planning East Coast Flyover
If you're out early tomorrow morning and look at the sky in the direction of the ocean, you may see the Discovery space shuttle fly by on its way to meet up with the International Space Station in orbit. Tomorrow's launch, one of only five to take place during morning twilight, is also the first morning launch to head up the Atlantic coast from Cape Canaveral in Florida. According to space.com, Discovery should be visible from New York City about 6:28 a.m.
Tomorrow's flight is one of only four remaining before the shuttle program comes to an end, probably in September.
