Dec 3, 2008- STS-126 landing, day 3

Long days and nights- working 12 hr. shifts until the rest of the crew get here from Florida to help with ferry preps. Mated the yellow lifting sling to the orbiter and raised to to maintenance height, leveled it and installed the jacks underneath. Got done around 0100 PST.

One good thing about working these weird hours is the amazing sunrise that we saw in the California high desert. Everyone had to stop and watch it for a couple of minutes when they had a chance. Looks like a Florida sunset!
