The Weather Cooperated

The launch seemed to go fine. We looked for it from the house, but I've given up on seeing it from here. I think that the roof line is just too high above the trajectory, when it's heading north up to the ISS. The only launch I've seen from here was an Atlas at night, and it was heading due east, so it wasn't moving away from us as fast. It reminds me, though, that there aren't going to be very many more opportunities to see it. I suspect that it's the largest launch vehicle that we're going to have for a long, long time.
