I believe after launch it heads out eastwards towards Europe which is 
why one of the emergency landing sites is in Spain.

 From here (EL96 - the other side of Florida) I get some great views at 
night as it launches but once it starts heading out I quickly lose it.

I may be wrong of course but someone else can provide the detail I am sure!
