    I live close to where the shuttle lifts off at Cape Canaveral Fl.

    I took this a few minutes ago of the lift off.

    You're welcome. Unfortunately it went behind the clouds. Not a very clear day here today.

    Yes I usually watch them.

    It is so loud that the windows shake at home.

    When we lived in GA, we could see the "trail" when the shuttle took off. Was too cool! Once when they had a night take off, we could see it glowing in the sky.
    I've always wanted to go and watch one happen. We have some friends that work at NASA and they've said that when ever we want, we can come visit and we can go to where you can see it up close and personal.

    I lived in Merritt Island in 1964-1965 and I remember that we used to go out on the playground at school and watch the launches---it was soooo cool! I wanted to be an astronaut when I grew up, but my mom told me only men could be----she wasn't much of a woman's libber :D

    I used to live in Ocala, FL and we, too, could see the night launches. Only once did it land in FL and our whole house shook. I had no idea what was happening.

    Where I am I got about 10 sec of that same picture but the clouds were thicker so it was only a 10 sec. view.
    I love to watch them but I've seen so many I don't go up there anymore. Up close the ground seems to actually shake. I highly recommend it for visitors.

    I saw the launch for the first time last night. What an awesome sight. I felt so proud of our country and what it can accomplish. Great patriotic event.

    here in Winter park I only saw it twice for a split second each, way to cloudy , but I was glad to see a safe lift-off.

    I really wish they would show this on TV again. There's a whole generation of kids who have never seen it.

    I think it's something that is taken for granted, but I think it's still really cool.

    The shuttle arrived home safely yesterday. The sonic booms were so loud I almost ran outside to see who was setting off bombs by my house!
    Didn't see it but sure heard it.
    :D
