VERY VERY LOUD the whole boat vibrated. This camrea was preety old so it does not convey how awsome it was. Glad I callled in sick!

We were able to see the contrail of the launch from the Gainesville Airport. Sun was in the wrong place to actually see the shuttle. Quite a few folks parked along Waldo Road, had pulled over to see the launch.

God speed Discovery! America is back in space!

I wonder how many people around the world were watching and personally willing the Shuttle up to the (relative) safety of space? I know I was!

Nasa.gov has a live video feed so you can watch what is happening real time on the web. Check it out at http://www.nasa.gov
