Our club, the Brevard Astronomical Society was invited by NASA to set up solar scopes at the Shuttle Atlantis final rollover when they moved her to a permanent location at the Space Center Visitor area on 10/02/2012. She will be in a hangar suspended on an angle with the bay doors open and the boom extended. It was a perfect day when we did this event, not a cloud in the sky and mild temps. There was a crowd of about 10,000 and we had eight scopes for observation. It was a thrill to be that close to a Shuttle and it was one of the best events our club has ever had.

All our scopes as the Shuttle Atlantis just arrived. We had lines for six and a half hours except for when the Shuttle was first parked.
