Atlantis’ Final Reentry Over Cancun, Mexico [video]

Yesterday morning, I woke up at 3:30am to watch the final space shuttle reentry.  Unless you have been living under a rock for the past few months, you know that the return of the Space Shuttle Atlantis wrapped up the Space Shuttle program yesterday morning.  As sad as that is, this amazing video has been made because of it.  If you were like me, you watched NASA’s official video feed of the reentry but until the few seconds before landing, there wasn’t much to see other than a big screen in mission control that was updating where Atlantis was along its flight path.  Well, that was the boring video because the awesome view was captured by videographer Noe Castillo in Cancun, Mexico.  This spectacular video shows Atlantis streaking across the sky for its final reentry.
