Shuttle launch

Wow, that was awesome! Watching the orbiter pull away from the external fuel tank on live TV was nothing short of spectacular.

I saw one from Lake Mary back in the late 90's, you could see the glow and it was really cool to see. Unfortunately, I was woke up by Columbia breaking up over East TX in Feb. of '03 and spent the next few days in the midst of all of the chaos in Nacogdoches County.
