    Just went out to the parking lot at work to see the Titan 4 launch on time.
    Plume and exhaust trail faintly visible to naked eye through haze; picked it
    and followed it in 15x45 binoculars as the orange exhaust grew slowly
    brighter through SRB separation until I lost the second stage and the
    tumbling SRBs in a cloud.
