Friday's Space Shuttle Launch Possibly Delayed--Weather

For those hoping to see the shuttle go up Friday, there's a good chance it will be postponed due to bad weather.

Stay tuned!!

Kat Et Al,

Yes, you can see it from Kissimmee and it was gorgeous.

I did not make it back to the house in time to get my camera. I missed the photo of a lifetime.

I hope someone got it.

Hi Skyblues,

That's great that you got some pictures. Hope you'll post them when you get home. I must have went outside too late, I guess :(

Have fun on the rest of your trip. Tell Alex, Haley and Ian we all said hello.

It was wonderful. Besides seeing it, we were able to hear it. It truly is amazing!
