Default Final shuttle launch

Did anyone manage to catch the finall shuttle launch 'live' in Florida?

We have only seen one shuttle launch but it left an indelible memory. Sad, really, that this is an end of an era, as the recent flight of Atlantis marks the official end of the US Space Shuttle programme after 30 years.

I agree ellie, it is a sad end of an era. We were lucky enough to see 3 launches and watching a regular atlas rocket or similar just wont cut the mustard lol

We have been lucky enough to see two launchs and as you say they will be something you will never forget.
My friend was on the beach watching this last one and she said the atmosphere was awseome even though it was cloudy it was still a sight to see.
