Re: Discovery




Hi All: I saw STS-116 for a brief 10 seconds SE of Block Island Sound.
It appeared as an orange glowing nickel sized object SE of Block Island
Sound prior to MESO. It disappeared when the main engine was shut off.

This was my first opportunity to actually view the Shuttle launch from
my
own back yard (in Silver Springs). When it first fired off we looked to
the
south east. At first I thought what I saw was the lights from town,
about 4
miles away. The horizon was lit up pretty well. THen the exhaust from
the
launch vehicle became quite apparent and the light on the horizon faded
away. Watched until it moved behind that big old pine tree and then went
back to the TV coverage.

Gorgeous view of Discovery climbing out tonight from across the state.
It
gave me a good feeling, especially knowing there are ham radio
satellites
onboard!
