Not the Space Shuttle, but we decided not to drive to Titusville to watch the launch. After a little research on the internet we realized that, thousands of people descend on a small park at about the same time, watch the 90 seconds of the launch, then leave at the same time causing a huge traffic jam for hours. Not what we had in mind at all. So we just watched it from the boat. Not as dramatic as being there, but no traffic.
As soon as we spotted it, it was gone. That's quick.
Then all that was left was the dissipating contrail.
Good luck Discovery!
Here's to a safe and successful mission.
