The tiny blob on the infrared images turned into something that looked like an orbiter for the last couple of minutes, and then for the actual landing there was enough light from massive floodlights lining runway 22 that they actually did switch to natural light. it was beautiful!
Now a "turnaround team" of 170 people has to fly out from KSC to prep Discovery for her flight back to Florida, strapped to the back of a modified Boeing 747. NASA wanted to land in Florida yesterday morning, but the weather yesterday and today didn't cooperate.
Welcome home, Discovery!
