    The first rocket launch from the New Mexico spaceport 
    is to take place this morning.The first launch window
    at 7:30 AM MDT this morning has been set back to
    10:30AM MDT.I believe that I should be able to see it
    from my location just after it leaves the pad.It will
    come down on White Sands Missel range about 33 miles
    away from the launch site after going about 70 miles
    high..The New Mexico spaceport is a little over a
    hundred mile to my Northeast.Also a second spaceport
    is said to be opening in about a year or two to the
    east of my location in Texas.So I will have a front
    row to some cool rocket launchs in the coming years.
