    Despite (or perhaps because of) a low haze that obscured the lights of
    Los Angeles and Palos Verdes, my wife and I observed the launch of AC164
    from the beach at Newport Beach, CA.  We first saw the vehicle as a red
    spot very low to the horizon and observed the burnout of the solid
    boosters, and shutdown of the booster and sustainer stages.  I lost
    track after the sustainer shutdown.
