Atlantis lifted off as scheduled at 2:20 pm on a beautiful Florida afternoon. We found a great spot to watch two blocks from the hotel in someone's backyard, where about 40-50 other people had gathered. In general, the folks in Titusville seem to get used to this occasional influx, and nobody gets too excited.

It was awesome.

We hi-tailed it out of there and are in Walterboro, SC for the night. We're going to try to get up early and beat feet out of here, so that's it for now. We'll update / summarize when we get home, and put up a bunch more pix. In the meantime, here are a couple photos of the 3-minute spectacle we rode 1,300 miles to see.
