Awe thanks. I wish everyone could see a shuttle launch just once, it's amazing! Everyone is outside. It's the only time you catch everyone looking
up! More people should look up
You never know what you might see.
Oh I have the best view ever. My balcony over looks the Space Center
and I watch all launches from it. I can see the assembly building. I have a
thread I made of one of the launches. I get really excited so if you watch the video don't laugh
When it goes off, even rockets, the whole house shakes. We have two more launches to go and I will watch each and probably cry. I love the shuttle and
anything having to do with space. I meet lots of people who work out there on the shuttle. I have even met the crew from the last Atlantis mission,
that was awesome! I have received all kinds of cool memorabilia from those I know out there.
I actually just switched schools to the local college to go for Aerospace Technology and I can't wait! I will be in my own little world there with
others who love and enjoy all things space. I hope to work on the future Mars programs one day, now for me that would be a dream since I have this
slight obsession with Mars
That said, those tanks certainly look fishy. I can't figure out what they are. Google maps doesn't think there's anything there. When you
look on street view it seems that the facility was blurred out, though you can see that a truck is leaving it.
I don't remember what they are but my roommate does. He isn't here right now and won't be home til late tonight. He told me once before what they
were for, it's nothing special. I never noticed it had street view..wow.
Being that it is so near to Cape Canaveral the speculation is endless as far as what it could be.
There don't seem to be pipelines leading into or out of it which leads me to believe those are storage tanks. For what, who knows? It is too small
and too isolated to be petroleum or water.
I see all kinds of weird things out here with there being so many military bases out here and the Space Center, it's practically the norm to not even
pay attention to half the strange things we see around here. I don't think they are anything spectacular. They were just what was in my dream.
You should drive down there and see if there are signs posted. If it is something to do with water, well then I would assume even more strange
things seeing as the placement there all by itself doesn't make sense.
This area is very small and with the hospital being literally down the street from there they might have something to do with the hospital. I will try
and go by there sometime this week either before work or after but it's hard to pull over cause cops get all pain in the butt for pulling over on the
causeway. They love to sit there and catch speeders, it's a speed trap!
Thanks for your reply and I like your avy
Stargate is one of my favorite movies
and anything having to do with Ancient Egypt I am interested in.
