Anyone else see the launch? I had a great view from my patio. Here is a shot of the trail it left.

Those are some awesome shots! Very cool.

I wish I had thought to take my camera out with me before the launch.

I was at WalMart and totally forgot about it until I saw the trail in the sky. I took a picture with my cell phone. It looked pretty cool cause it was right as the sun was going down. Nice pictures ya'll.

I still can't get over the fact that we can see this thing take off from over here on the other side of the state!
