3..2..1..

Liftoff. Watched a Delta 2 rocket launch from the beach last night. Crappy pics, but kind of cool to see flying overhead...

Re: 3..2..1..

Very cool

Closest I've gotten is a couple months back when the shuttle, space station, and Venus were all going by the moon. I'm glad it was a clear night and we were listening to the news that night ... Chuck G clued us in just in time or would have missed it.

I guess I left that part out. It was launched by NASA at Cape Canaveral in Florida. I'm in Vero Beach at the moment soaking up some rays...

When with the gub'net I worked with some guys who were part of the Centaur rocket program and actually got to witness the launch from the bunker out on the launch field. Some pretty amazing stories ... sights, sounds, and vibrations from ground zero. I definitely wouldn't miss it if in the area during a launch.
