Update 3:01pm ET: What a greatÂlaunch for the 4th of July!Â HOORAY! :)Â This is a view from our front yard.
What a day for Space Shuttle Discovery to take off!Â The last 2 scheduled departure dates were no-go due to weather.Â I woke up this morning thinking it justÂmay happen today!Â However, it’s partly cloudly and there is currently some light rain at my location.
So now I’m looking at radar and NASA TV.Â The clouds are rather spotty and the sky is blue at the Cape, so keeping fingers crossed that all goes well!
If the clouds move out quickly, we should have a clear view of take-off in less than 1 hour.
