Watched the historic last night-time Endeavour launch on CNN. Amazing, specially as it was entering the clouds. Always loved the night launches.
When we lived in St Pete FL all we had to do was stand on the deck facing East and we could see the Cape Canaveral launches.
while looking for this video to post on my blog I found this in Huffpo
There was some concern about several pieces of foam insulation coming off the external fuel tank during liftoff, and the shuttle being hit two or three times.
Sending prayers and good thoughts to the crew for a successful mission and safe return.
