Here we go again. Range now no go due to cloud ceiling.
I was down at the river to watch the launch. SpaceCat was there with me. I spent a lot of time watching the NASA long wing Canberra circling to take pictures of the launch. They appeared to be at 60,000 feet or so. Every time there was a delay, they had to recompute their orbit to arrive at the appropriate point for taking the photos. If they were indeed at 60k, in full pressure suits, it must have been a serious disappointment to the crew...geez, another delay...more computations...been there, done that...
