    I saw the last launch from a park about 15 miles west of Baltimore.  I had my iPad tuned to the webcast.  A few seconds after launch I saw the rocket plume rise above the horizon.
    
    Given that there is normally about a 20 second lag with a webcast i still feel that that's the best way to time the launch (and any potential delays or scrubs).
