7455 Rainbow over the Shuttle Enterprise (Explore 6/5/12)

    Newer Older

    It was a very exciting and historic event yesterday as tugs brought the barge carrying the shuttle Enterprise into NY Harbor. The shuttle will be docked for two nights in Bayonne/Jersey City before going across the Hudson River to New York City to its permanent home near the Intrepid Museum. There was a brief downpour and then a rainbow appeared while this was taking place. The clouds were awesome and the lighting was perfect when the sun came out. It was a photographers dream!
