Space Shuttle Discovery In Amarillo

Some Amarillo shutterbugs had a rare opportunity today to see the space shuttle up close.

The shuttle Discovery stopped at Rick Husband International Airport to refuel this afternoon on its way back home to Florida.

After a successful mission to the international space station, Discovery landed at Edwards Air Force Base in Mojave, California on September 11th.

The shuttle will continue on to the Kennedy Space Center in Orlando.
