My trip to Disney World...

I was at Disney World in Orlando, Florida last week and saw
the shuttle launch.  Although Orlando is roughly 100 km away
from the Cape, the shuttle exhibited a long and very bright
orange plume.  It was spectacular even at 1-power!  I couldn't
see the SRB separation but I suspect that it occurred at about
the same time that it entered some clouds (from my perspective).

I'm glad a lot of people got to see NEAR.  I missed it due to the
late hour (I think it was raining too).
