During closest approach they're looking at Charon, interesting...
Best quote heard during an inspection, "I was unaware that I was the only one who was aware."

Lots of chants with: USA, USA, USA
Remembering those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our rights & freedoms, and for those injured, visible or otherwise, in that fight.

And that was closest approach!!! Unfortunately other things are making the news today so it won't be as high as it should!
