As We Look Skyward Today - We Remember

As we look skyward at the fiery sunset of January 28, 2012 we are reminded of what happened 73-seconds after the fiery lift off of the space shuttle Challenger on January 28, 1986. It was on that day of disbelief that many of us watched the shuttle, with seven on board, explode in a forking plume of smoke and fire - there were no survivors. Among those that perished was Christa McAuliffe, the 37-year old high school studies teacher who was on her way to becoming the first ordinary U.S. civilian to travel into space. Note: The photo shown here was taken at 5:10 pm looking south west from the Bird Farm Road (CR-28) near Big Horn.
