We watched from our work truck yesterday as a huge bolt of lightning slammed the tower that Endeavour is resting on. Several strikes happened within and around Pad A's perimeter. I guess they want to double check the systems. One of my buddies told me they lost power inside the shuttle for a few seconds after the strike so I'm guessing they want to really run some tests on all the systems.

The lightning protection mast did it's job though, or there would have been a big boom :)

Sunday's time is 7:13PM EST.
