So who else is on standby to watch the Shuttle launch?

Apparently not too many. I will watch if I can.

I always do, with one eye open. She's up.
This is a great source of information:

I didn't know you guys could see it outside Florida. I live about 100 miles or so from the space station and it was pretty incredible in the sunset. Probably the best one I have ever seen. Caught it totally by chance, but when you see it going up, there is no mistaking it for anything else.

Wow -- talk about a pavlovian response -- I thought the title of this thread was Scuttle Launch ...... :oops: :wink:

I'm vacationing in the Tampa area. Sunday evening shortly after the launch we saw what first appeared to be a large jet in the sky but much more illuminated. We assumed it had to be the shuttle. Very impressive.

When I lived in Jax, we would always enjoy going outside for the night launches, even the late late night ones. Two minutes of seeing an upside down lighted match go up into the night sky.

Haha, I thought this said "Scuttle Launch". I was all excited for a new scuttle design.
