Foo - I saw it! I saw it! I Saw it!
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
I was coming to work when this DJ on the radio says "if you are driving around downtown Orlando I suggest you look at the sky, east-north-east, right about now....". So I looked and OMG! Freaking shuttle going up! Well it was more like a tiny dot with a big column of smoke behind it... anyway, I found it inspiring and wanted to share.
A guy in another bikeforum I'm on posted a pic of this - taken from his backyard. Sweet that you saw this!!!
I watched the last launch via Nasa website on my computer - with my Boss (a total space nut) on her computer in her office - we had sound way up - it was pretty cool and she loved it! Wish I had remembered to put in my calendar to watch this one too. :(

Here you go...
Saw one when I lived in Orlando in '93-94; they broadcast it that day, so I got to watch the televised version until the real one appeared on the horizon! OOHHHHH -- DX LIKE BIG FLAME TRAIL!!!!
A few years back I saw the shuttle when it was in route to land. A co-worker got on the radio and told everyone to look up. It was at night. That was awesome!
