Ron Dantowitz an astronomer representing NASA talks to Jared Reiss left and Huston Key right, a pair of cadets at the Civil Air Patrol and Richard Mellon Lieutenant Crenel of the Naples Civil Air Patrol about assembling a telescope near the end of runway 23 at the Naples Municipal Airport to capture images of the Shuttle Endeavour's return to Kennedy Space Center.  It takes the team three hours to fully assemble the telescopes and cameras, which can be monitored completely from a van equipped with several monitors. This telescope is powerful enough to capture images of the windows on the Space Station.  The Space Shuttle Endeavour is due to land at Kennedy Space Center at 2:35 a.m. June 1, 2011.
