    Oh my. We use to watch that site when I lived in Cocoa and Melbourne. The earth would rumble. Thanks for sharing. Great memory.

    Blessings,

    Wow-how neat to see that out your back door! Have you seen any night launches? My boss took a pic of a night launch and it was beautiful-would love to see either a day or night launch some day in person.
    Thanks for posting the pic.
