Ellington Field, Texas

Eric Grossman, my kids and I decided to brave the expected traffic, the crowd and the sun, to see the Space shuttle Endeavour transiting at the Ellington Field Joint Reserve Base.

The expected traffic, the crowd and the sun were there to greet us... so did the unexpected closure of the Exit to Ellington Field.

The space shuttle was parked next to rolls of Apache Helicopters belong to the Texas Air National Guard and a couple Coast Guard's Dolphines.  There were a lot of people there to say farewell to the very tired Space shuttle Endeavour piggyback on top of a modified 747.

We spent about 3 hours there making some images and just stare at this amazing machine.  This was nice to have this moment to savor the closing of a significant chapter in space history.
