Discovery, you are cleared to buzz the country.

Monday would have been a great day for landing since we could have seen Discovery pass over North of Seattle early in the morning - and we did have clear enough skies.  Florida was cruddy, so both passes were waved off.  Tuesday another try at landing will happen, there are a few chances for Florida as well as Edwards AFB.  But once again we'll miss it in Seattle since we have 80% chance of gunk.
Anyway, the shuttle will kind of be doing a victory pass kind of like Top Gun's "we gotta buzz the tower Goose!" as the shuttle passes over many major US cities.
I'm sure there will be a lot of great photos once the flyby happens....just not from Seattle.
