The Crack of Dawn

Where I was when Curiosity Landed

At a little after 6AM in the city of Sheffield in the UK, I dragged myself to the living room, pausing briefly to admire Venus, and got my cousin's complicated satellite tv started. I guess it was late night in California. The waiting time was a bit tense, but the sight of the first image, proof that the landing was successful made it all worthwhile.
