So I saw the Space Shuttle launch today. It was pretty cool. I was at the boat club, and when the thing lifted off I looked north.
And there in the sky - some 300 or so miles away - a plume of fire was visible in the night sky.
Due to the distance, there was no sound. But I could see the fire from the engines. I watched it go till it was just a speck in the sky, barely visible.
It was cool.
Before they stop flying the shuttle I want to get to the space center and watch a lift off from closer.
