Endeavour launch - best view from above.
I'm kind of glad that I didn't try to go see this launch last week. It's looking like the best view was from above the clouds, since viewers on the ground saw it for about 22 seconds before it went into the clouds. Kind of a bummer view if you ask me, but then I've been spoiled with 2 great launches including a night launch. Can't beat that!
Short view from the Visitor Center. Funny to hear the "awwwww...." when it vanishes quickly.
Then there is the view from above the clouds, I just saw these photos show up on Spaceflight.now website.
