      Just watched Endeavor lift off...

      ...Just watched the Space Shuttle Endeavor lift off from Cape Canaveral...what a sight. I've been here in Florida 8 years and have seen several launches since I got down here and they never get old to me...The best part is that I'm totally across the state on the west coast and the shuttle still lights up the night sky...Hudson, Florida...165 miles away and it still looks fantastic...

      When I lived in FL I was able to watch 3 take off, 2 day launches and 1 night launch. One of the day launches was Challenger. That was a very sad event, especially watching it with my own eyes.

      That's one thing I really miss about living there. We'd watch the local channel right up to launch just to make sure it really happened, then go out in the back yard and watch it go.

      I would love to be in Florida for a launch some day. It sounds like an amazing sight!
