zephyr illusions photo by donna October 1992. The view atop Chasseral, Jura Mountains looking across Switzerland to The Alps on the horizon. Fog, intensely thick, rising from Lac Bienne and stretching its fingers high onto the Lignières-Plateau de Diesse after wholly filling the valley below the plateau.

"Have a good flight and soft landing."

i, too, wish Discovery and her crew a good flight and soft landing. wish i could be in Florida to watch Discovery glide through the sky on it's approach to the shuttle landing strip.

"Discovery inched back 400 feet from its docking point, but before leaving for good, flew a farewell loop around the station. Pilot Jim Kelly then fired the spacecraft's jets and repositioned the ship for its voyage home."

  1. Let's wait and see how this will work out. I just read that the landing has been postphoned for 24 hours...

    Yesterday there was a documentary about the challenger on t.v. very scary to see.:(

  2. yes, landing posponed because of low cloud cover. common cause for postponement. i'm holding on to only good vibes for Discovery and her crew.
