Discovery and the Moon today - Beautiful!

Gorgeous! What an extremely beautiful sight early this morning following the 2am EDT rollback of the service structure exposing space shuttle Discovery - ready to fly late tonight at 9:20:14 pm EDT.

Looking at the full moon reminds me... It was forty years ago this week that the crew of Apollo 9 were in earth orbit testing the lunar module for that summer's first landing on the moon.
