Eyewitness to a Scrub-Just got back from a roadtrip over to Cocoa Beach to ; they watch the shuttle launch slated for 8:15.
NASA halted the countdown at the nine-minute mark after it became apparent that the weather would not improve at either of the two emergency landing strips in Spain. Conditions were ideal in Florida with a picture-perfect, nearly full moon shining over the launch pad.
Yes it was picture-perfect; at least Eileen and I were able to walk on the beach in the moonlight, watching the waves crash onto the beach and see a cruise ship head out of Port Canaveral, lit up and heading out into the Atlantic, awaiting the launch. No fireworks, but nice nonetheless.
