If you were up early and snapped any photos of the space shuttle, please share them with us. Here's how:

Brian James of St. Petersburg shot this shuttle photo from Vinoy Park in St. Petersburg, early Monday morning. "This was the first and only frame I was able to capture of the shuttle. The shuttle disappeared during frame number two," he wrote.
