I've never seen one in person, even. A few years back when SpaceShipOne won the X Prize, I so regretted not driving down to see that. *sigh*

Well, let's take a field trip, then!

I would be SO there!

I saw
the December night launch from Orlando. Even from there it was spectacular. I'd like to get a little bit closer sometime, though. Time is running out...

Re: I saw
Oh, neat! Yeah, that "time is running out" thing is part of my increasing desire to go watch a launch.

It's amazing in person. We saw Discovery (I think it was Discovery) launch right at sunrise a few years ago. One thing I didn't expect was how bright the exhaust was. Too bright to look at for any more than a second. And it's loud, you feel it in your chest.
