Students stood on top of the Tower 3 parking garage in hopes of getting a glimpse of space shuttle Endeavour’s 6:03 p.m. Wednesday launch.

Unfortunately, due to cloudy skies the majority of the launch was hidden, but some did manage to snap a few photos. And overall, the experience was not ruined.

“It was beautiful,” said senior Erin Ricci.

“It felt pretty good to see it again,” said junior Josh Lonski. “It reminded me of when I used to go watch it when I was little.”

Senior Daniel Tardif said: “It was a magnificent sight. I hope to go up from now on every time.”

And how are students celebrating Thursday’s 40th anniversary of man’s first steps on the moon?

“Get some of my fellow friends out to my place and maybe dress up as rockets and party hard core, yeah!” Tardiff said.
