On Friday, April 27, 2012, the Space Shuttle Enterprise was being piggybacked to New York from Dulles Airport.  I decided to go down to the Bradley Beach
and hope this would be the best spot to get a photo of this event.  I am glad I did.  I live 3 miles from the ocean and the Shuttle was out over the ocean.  I would
have never seen it from home.  As a matter of fact, if this little airplane didn't fly by me low, I would not have seen it at all.  I wasn't looking over the ocean, but
over land.  I took a few shots of the small aircraft and even though this was not a good shot,  it is the first of 3 to have the shuttle in it.  I noticed a aircraft in the
background while taking this shot and decided to take some pictures of it as well.  I knew it was large, I could see that naked eye, but didn't believe it would be
that far out over the water when they said they were comming up the coast.  I didn't make much of it unitl I got home and looked at all my shots.
And there it was.
I used my Canon XSi with a Canon 75 - 300 mm lens maxxed out.  Camera was set on automatic.  Darkened and Sharpened in Ulead and PS2
