Thanks for the heads up! We'll keep our heads up! Are there any solids? Might be a real show when the second stage ignites if it's in sunlight way up there.

I'm not certain about how many stages there are, but I've seen these rockets before and they're an exhilarating sight.

Thanks for the info. Hopefully the sky will be clear to my SSE.

Scrubbed due to technical issue. Because it's Lockmart, not SpaceX. Satellite would already be on orbit if it was riding a 100% made-in-America booster.

Any redo? As it turned out, I would have been skunked, due to cloud cover. The sky to my SSE was not clear enough to view.
