3...2...1

You know would be the coolest thing about living on the east coast of Florida? Being able to see all the shuttle launches.

Night launches would be much cooler in person than on TV, but it's still incredible to me. Right now Endeavor appears to be little more than a flashlight beam on my TV, but to be there, watching that point of light above you, flying over the ocean, getting smaller and smaller as it nears orbit has to be an awesome sight.

May God be with the shuttle crew on their mission and give them a safe return.

Susan!

This comment is going to be long and rambling ... I'll apologize in advance

When I was a little girl, my family lived in central Florida for about two years. I remember one morning my dad pulled us out of school and took us to watch a shuttle launch. We were more than three miles away from the launch pad, but I swear the sound rattled our chests and you could smell the flames when it took off. The higher it got in the sky, the more it arced and after a while it looked like a falling star going the wrong way. I will never forget that day ... wish I could take my daughter to see the same thing! I bet mom and dad still have the pics we took.
