Thanks, I agree. It was on her IPhone at something like 18,000ft while doing 250kts.

I woke up 30 minutes early for work to catch it. I live in Tequesta and was pretty visible.

We had a fishing trip planned in mosquito Lagoon for Friday and we were pretty bummed when they changed it to Saturday. We were so far south in the lagoon, it would have been the closest we have ever been to a launch. Ended up watching from home and it was a good one, and loud!

Aircraft Type please?

In our old Orlando days, we'd watch a few pre-dawn Shuttle launches and that monster would LIGHT the sky up! Followed a few minutes later, by a low rumble!
