Discovery Oddity (from

The video was shot from the right rocket booster looking down past the right wing of the shuttle. It is timed for certain parts of the song to fit the right mood. If you like flight or space, I think you will enjoy this.
Click on the picture for the video. More 'plain jane' videos of the shuttle are here: LINK
