This was my first opportunity to actually view the Shuttle launch from my
own back yard (in Silver Springs). When it first fired off we looked to the
south east. At first I thought what I saw was the lights from town, about 4
miles away. The horizon was lit up pretty well. THen the exhaust from the
launch vehicle became quite apparent and the light on the horizon faded
away. Watched until it moved behind that big old pine tree and then went
back to the TV coverage.

Gorgeous view of Discovery climbing out tonight from across the state. It
gave me a good feeling, especially knowing there are ham radio satellites
