    Default STS 133 - Discovery animation



    I'm not sure if this is lame, but I took all of the frames of Discovery I got and made them into an animation.

    It would have been cooler if I was not tracking manually so sometimes it appears the shuttle is moving backwards.

    No way is it lame. You need to protect it. It pictures of a piece of history that will never happen again. You should be proud. Nice work
