This is a mostly off-topic post, but I think most people won't mind. :)
Earlier today (Tuesday 4/17/12), the Space Shuttle Discovery was flown (via jet) from Cape Canaveral, FL to Dulles International Airport near Washington, DC. (The shuttle was flown to the DC area to go to its final retirement location, to be placed on display at the Smithsonian's Udvar-Hazy Center near Dulles Airport in northern Virginia.) Before flying to Dulles however, the Discovery made multiple passes over Washington, DC, passing over the National Mall and various federal buildings. It made 2 passes near my building, and I got 7 photos of the Discovery. Below are the first 3 photos, from the first pass, taken with my HTC Trophy. As you probably can tell from the first photo, it passed almost directly over my head.
People may say the Trophy has a lousy camera, but I don't think the photos turned out too badly at all.
