    Saw about my 10th Shuttle launch from the harbor town of Charleston, SC
    Most have been late night, this was just after sunset. Saw the smoke trail
    and  booster fall off. Followed for a good 5 minutes or more. I am still
    like a 10 year old kid when I see these things!!!! Still want to see one
    from the Cape, but twice they have been scrubbed while I was there.
