    Would love to hear any hints about launch viewing at
    KSC. I hope to get within three mile range. Yet may be
    at the 6 mile point. 10X50's the best? Also I am
    curious of confidence in the 4-24 launch date with all
    the problems now being dealt with. What part of the
    causeway offers best viewing. Its an afternoon launch
    with a small window. If anyone has been or any help
    would be great. I watched sts  96 launch. The amazing
    thing was the sudden drop in visibility early in morn
    just two minutes prior to liftoff. Moisture in air
    suddenly increased muffling sound and obscuring
    view. The flare of the srb's was most notable. Some
    kind of aluminum propellant gives it that quality.
