OMG, you are so lucky. Its on my "Bucket List"! Even watching on TV it is so breathtaking. We are in north central PA and on a high hill and if the weather is perfectly clear, we can see rockets going up from Wallops in VA. We have seen a few but the key is "clear" and that is not often in PA. Love watching the ISS fly over also. It was clear last night when it went over. I have an app to emails me when, watch time, and the direction its coming from.

I saw someone tweet something to the effect of "Congrats to all the astronauts that just left Earth, good choice" and it had me hollering!

Hope it was fun to watch!

I am also in Florida and launches are awesome.
Even if you are not CLOSE when that thing takes off you are close.
Also funny story is many of the residents that live in those houses south of the launch area early in the morning will move lawn chairs etc to the top of their roofs and have launch parties. Up there facing the launch pad and waiting.
We viewed launches from the beach so we would also get there to claim a spot on the beach early.
Funny to watch them setting up on their roofs.
Not large groups of people ......but 4-6 I would say but still great entertainment while we waited.
They have the best seats ever!!!

I watched the SpaceX launch on TV. It brought back memories. I was in elementary school when the space program was ramping up (Gemini, I think) They made a big deal of them--some parent would bring in a portable TV (even those were cool; they hadn't been around for that long) and we would all sit on the floor and watch.

But I pretty much grew up at an age that by the time I was noticing stuff, the idea of space travel wasn't totally new, so I was a little nonchalant about it. I think maybe our parents were more impressed by them than we were.

SpaceX just broadcast their docking procedure live from inside the capsule. I just happened to find it when I was wandering around the internet; I didn't actually stay there long because watching someone move slowly and carefully around a cabin for 5 minutes only to hear them say--"blah blah cable is connected" just gets old to me. It takes so long to go through some of their procedures. Understandable of course, but it doesn't hold my attention.

The neatest thing I have EVER personally seen in terms of space launches, etc. was just recently (relatively speaking) when Space X sent up one of their starlink rockets--it deploys 50- 60 of the satellites in a line, and it was incredibly cool to see them streaming by

Naked eye view--when we saw them, they were closer together, but still in a train, and they went almost overhead. They were individually a little brighter, but also more pinpoint than this.

Not my video--plucked from online. I couldn't find anyone to credit this video to or I would mention his name.



I'm thinking this was more or less soon after their launch (relatively speaking); apparently they move higher and spread out as they are fully deployed and generally aren't really visible to the naked eye.

Hi Di!

I lived in Titusville for a bit when i first got married! A solid block single story house. We were unaware of a night shuttle launch and were frozen in bed for a brief moment to grasp why the house was rumbling and it was daylight outside. A powerful force those things are going off!
The public relations that Space X does before and during their launches is fun and informative ...i just wish we had a better way to launch these people into orbit besides sitting on top of a controlled explosion

Do you think we'll ever be able to develop a space elevator, or is that just a sci-fi fantasy?

I love his collar and tag!!!! Handsome boy. <3

The launches always make me choke up and give me chills. I've never seen one in person but every single one I've ever watched (and I've always made a point to watch) always gets to me.

Its awe-inspiring. To me, its the ultimate reminder of how tiny we are in the universe. How little we know. How hard we work for that small bit of knowledge. Its a physical manifestation of the beauty and reality of science.

Its nothing short of incredible.

Just as amazing as the launches to me is the fact that SpaceX has been able to develop a way to bring the first stage back to earth with a controlled landing with an aim to salvaging and reusing it. It didn't come easy though LOL



And they're not embarrassed to admit it. This video was put together by SpaceX

I never even thought to put one of Newtie's space collars on him! So glad to see the mission was successful!
