Shuttle Launch

Can anyone verify that I saw the shuttle last night?  The object was 
traveling south to north. It was about 30-40 degrees above the horizon and 
was sighted about 5 min after launch.  I am located near Charleston, 
SC.  What I saw appeared to be brighter than an aircraft and faster than 
what I usually see.  It appeared to be flickering but not as a group of 
strobe lights on an airplane.  I had a scanner with me and heard two UHF 
transmissions on one of the shuttle UHF frequencies, however I did not copy 
what was said.

Thanks for any help.
