A hazy final shuttle launch and a hazy future

I wasn't permitted to get close to the launch because it would've meant getting stuck in traffic and being unable to respond to and cover breaking news, which is my job. So I went here, to a high point along South Tropical Trail on Merritt Island. The haze was too much, though.

The final space shuttle launch, of Atlantis, was disappointing photographically because clouds once again obstructed my view. It's also disappointing simply because the shuttle program was one of two things that made Brevard County interesting and exciting, and now they're both gone.
