It looked like a ghost ship flying out of the dark sky over the Pacific there as it landed at Edwards Air Force Base at 5:12 pacific time…Picture perfect landing…Amazing stuff.”

> CNN’s Miles O’Brien, 5:33am, Cape Canaveral: “Looks like I went to the wrong city.” Around 9:15am, he added: “It would have been nice to see the Discovery here, but more important, it’s nice to see the Discovery safe and sound.”

It is Touchdown – 6 minutes and breathing can resume.” (Midway through my flight to Texas, the pilot announced that the shuttle had landed safely.)
