I just came back in a little while ago. Unfortunately not the best viewing conditions. The sun isn't high enough so it's awful glare-y. Lots of clouds too so couldn't see the whole journey. But, it's exciting as ever to watch. Lots of people outside to watch it. Hopefully Gale will post some shots from closer later today!

Video of the liftoff. From the New York Times. I got goosflesh all around my neck after passing the T-15 second point up until nine minutes into the mission when the external fuel tank seperated from the shuttle as it reached orbital velocity. An excellent little movie. All I can say is ...

YES!!!
