A large “caboom” in the sky over Portofino Beach Resort!

Posted on 22 Feb, 2010 in the Belize News Category. No comments

Space Shuttle Endeavour

Last night, our staff and guests here at Portofino Beach Resort experienced something very unusual! We saw a large “ball of fire” in the Belizean sky and hear a very loud sonic “boom”….
We didn’t know what happened. 3 minutes after, we saw on CNN that  space shuttle Endeavour and its six astronauts were returning back to Earth and going to land at Kennedy Space Center in Florida, ending a two weeks successful mission.
During the two-week, 5.7 million-mile journey, commander George Zamka and his crew delivered and installed a new space station room “Tranquility” and a big bay window with commanding views of Earth.
It was a quite spectacular experience… and something to share with you!
