Satellite Launch, 4263 N US1 Melbourne, Fla: 5:15pm 24 Febuary 2012   4 comments

Well, yesterday I had the good fortune, wholly by accident with no pre-planning whatsoever, to be on the Indian River deck of Captain Katanna's Dockside Restaurant when the Navy launched their latest Mobile User Objective System satellite. Here's another, better video.

It was an impressive moment, and it's always nice to see a little bit of (good) history being made.

  1. Kitty's Halmark in Trenholm Plaza closed over the weekend. I believe 2/25/12 was their last day of business.

  2. I saw (and I think I noted elsewhere on this site) that they were going to close an the info in The State was that their lease was doubling and they opted to close instead.

  3. Many years ago I had to change planes at Orlando, and by the time we took off it was nighttime. As we flew south, the flight attendant told us to look off to our left because a satellite had just been launched from Cape Canaveral. It was a clear night, so we could see it all. It was beautiful and unforgettable.

  4. My daughter started college at Florida Tech. She said that "There was a launch" was always an acceptable excuse for being late or tardy.
