 From Richmond VA the initial ascent to orbit was easily naked eye 
visible as a diffuse glow traversing the eastern sky. The main engine 
cutoff was slightly north of due east. The view through 20x80 binoculars 
was nice, with a good exhaust plume filling the right two thirds of the 
field of view. The glowing exhaust cone was a bright orange like seen in 
the onboard video footage.
