    Yesterday's launch was wonderful to behold. The 7:38 PM launch time gave us, well over an hour away, an excellent view even without binoculars. I could see separation with my bare eyes. The sun shown off the shuttle for some time after that making it easy to follow. And then the rumbling caught up to us. :D My father got to see this one from his driveway, much closer than ours. "Space truck", my ass! :wink:

    I miss seeing shuttle launches. We used to sit out in the back yard and watch them. Those late in the afternoon were spectacular.

    Yeah, we were out on a boat on the Banana River. About as close as you could legally get. I've got some pics, but haven't uploaded them yet. It was awesome.
