Awesome! This is launching from Canaveral, yes? Assuming the launch does happen (seems to be a halt right now) I'll try to get a long exposure, I'm just across the state.

Holding now. Last minute delay. Something about telemetry dropouts from launch vehicle are being seen.

T-4minutes and holding...

What's the word did they scrub it?

This is for space coast right? Cape Canaveral?

I'm guessing this feed is delayed...
any anomalous activity will be instantly "sanitized"...

2133 EST is the new target time.

I'm stepping outside. No camera

Nice, thanks for telling us that was killer.

Watched it till it vanished.

Love them night launches.

If this rocket's heading was southward, I'm pretty sure I got it. I mistook the red glow as a local helicopter, and therefore missed the prime window, for good size, but I got a nice streak headed toward trees. Give me a little time to adjust the pic for having my settings too high for the neighborhood lights (too bright, need to correct the contrast and brightness) and I'll get it posted in a bit.

It had a south trajectory.

Not a cloud in the sky. Another great launch.

I did see a strange aircraft when the delay occurred.

What is the mission? I watched much of the NASA news conferences this afternoon and somebody mentioned a launch later today, and this must be it. Thanks for the thread.

Like, strange aircraft as in...

I am in T-ville, maybe I was too focused on the rocket, but I didn't see any other aircraft in the vicinity.

Please elaborate jrod, if you will.

Thanks. There are only three scheduled third-generation TDRS satellites which will be put into operation, and this is the second. From your source:


The third generation TDRS will be functionally identical to the second generation TDRS with one major exception – beamforming. Multiple Access beamforming will be performed on the ground, unlike the second generation spacecraft which performs this function on-board. Like the first generation, this will allow for the unscheduled S-band DAS to be possible for low data rate use.

I admit, I picked the worst possible spot outside to try to grab a picture, with a flood light pretty much in front of me. I did manage to get a little of the rocket before it ventured behind these trees on the right-hand side, though.

Settings were ISO 200, f/3.3 f/4, 30 second exposure set to record after a 2-second delay (should have set it for a 10-second, blurring is from the wobble of pressing the shutter button) I did my best to try to tone down the brightness from the flood light without washing out the rocket trail, I think this is acceptable for both a rush pic & a rush edit.

Looking due east, rocket headed SE-ish.
