It was a great view from the NASA ferry landing. Looking forward to the next launch.

Great shot!  This was my first live viewing of a major satellite launch, and I watched it from about half a mile south of the ferry landing, alongside the edge of Pierce Taylor Rd at its intersection with Petit Rd.  Nice break in the shoreline trees gave a great view, without getting into the congestion at the landing.

Congrats to NASA, Orbital/ATK, and of course our NSF team!
