Going to start the launch day thread before I get a nap in the bag, especially as it might be a short day.

Data review showed the two strikes occurred at 12:31 p.m. and 12:40 p.m. EDT. The first struck the water tower 515 feet (157 meters) from the pad and the second struck the beach area northeast of the pad.

Looks like the video is of the second strike.

May I suggest locking the new thread until 1am to stop people accidently using it?

Right now at the pad it's peeing it down.

Yup, veritable downpour.
Remembering those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our rights & freedoms, and for those injured, visible or otherwise, in that fight.

Not sure if this has been shared, but this site lets you track shipping activies.

This is a link to Cape Canaveral.  Freedom Star and Liberty Star are listed.

Shows departure date/time and lets you see current possition and track.  (they both put out to sea this afternoon)

Enjoy!

Here are the direct links that we used last time:

Freedom Star:  http://www.marinetraffic.com/ais/shipdetails.aspx?mmsi=337942424&header=true
Liberty Star:  http://www.marinetraffic.com/ais/shipdetails.aspx?mmsi=338990000&header=true

Both show still in port but the data is 8 hours old.

Try this one and see if you have anymore luck

Also depends if they report their position or if they don't.

For once you have tasted Concorde you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skywards, for there you have been and there you will long to return.
