Hey guys...Just watched Discovery take off. It was awesome.The clouds were heavy low on the horizon then they started to glow orange and the spacecraft rose above the tree tops with a hugh bright tail of orange popped into even heavier clouds only for a few second and then flew into clear sky with the setting sun reflecting off the craft and trailing a long gold tail of flames. This was the best one ever to watch. At that point they were traveling about 2700mph....wow!

We're 130 miles away from the launch site and can still hear and see so much. They had a perfect day to fly. Karen3
