Rise to space

I'm in Stuart, Florida - we went outside to watch the shuttle Discovery launch today. It was incredible to see it rise in the sky and know there were people onboard.

In case anybody's interested - from about 90 miles away you can easily spot the smoke trail and you can easily see the flame at certain points during the ascent, especially when then throttle up and then again when the solid fuel boosters separate.
