Our today's Intro is presented by our very own Klaus:

My part of the world is known for several things - Gorgeous Beaches, Alligators, Oranges - of course Disney World, but one thing stands out from all of it - and that is Florida's role as the place where history has been made for mankind. At the Kennedy Space Center near Titusville, Fl the Rocket that delivered the first man to the moon was launched and Friday night was yet another launch date. The Space Shuttle Endeavor was launched, routed for the ISS (Internationa Space Station). My Sister shot this little Video, while I was watching the launch some 120 miles (200km) apart. Although my view was obstructed by heavy clouds - I still was able to see the orange glow of the launch and then later the shuttle itself as a tiny white dot against the dark sky. She however was in the midst - about 10 miles away (17km) - at the coast and among thousands of visitors, gathered to see the rather rare night launch.

I see talent runs in the family!
A great post - definitely your world. Years ago my son was young and loved the space shuttle. On a rare occassion it launched up the east coast and we could see it from our front yard in Virginia.
Thanks for reminding me of a special memory.
