    But only for about 2 seconds !
    Clouds and light conditions were interfering with observing conditions.
    
    STS100 was pretty bright but I couldn't see de External Tank which was
    probably obscured by clouds.
    
    This was my second sighting of a space shuttle some 20 minutes after launch.
    
    The first one(STS99) gave a impressive show last year with external tank
    dumping large amounts of fuel.
