Sonic Boom of Atlantis

Today, I woke up around 5:15 to watch on TV the live telecast of Shuttle Atlantis landing back to earth after it's 13 day mission to International Space Center-ISC. I am always excited to feel the Sonic Boom. As demonstrated by the picture below, when the Atlantis enter the earth's atmosphere this morning, we heard the sonic boom. It is a sound like an explosion in fact, we can feel the shaking of our home.Since, 2008 whenever there's a launch happening in Kennedy Space Center, we love to watch it outside our yard. It was tiny but clear enough to see as it lift up to the sky. The Atlantis lift off happened on my birthday and it was the final launch and the end of the era of Shuttle Program. We went to Port Canaveral to witness the launch, a history making event for mankind. It's beautiful isn't it?The Atlantis safe landing at Kennedy Space Center, 5:56AM July 21,2011, just awesome! The first two pictures shown in this post were googled and the last picture was snipped from NASA website.
