Sweet. And very good camera work.
I watched one launch from Jetty Park at Port Canaveral a few years ago. Anyone can do the so-called vip viewing with the tour but it looked like a royal pain and if it gets delayed you miss your shot.
Even as a casual observer you'd have to plan for a few days because it inevitably gets delayed. And then you get on site (just across the inlet from base--though you can't see the launch site from there, you just wait until it clears the trees) an hour or two early to make sure you can get a spot. Then you wait around after scheduled launch for a short delay. Everyone's got their radio tuned in. They finally launch and about a minute later it's over. Not unlike a few of my dates.
It's pretty cool actually. Though I'd seen it on TV I wasn't expecting so much fire coming out of that thing and the trailing vapor plume is wild. It's so big and heavy and I don't know if it was an optical illusion but it looked not just like the rocket was going up but it like the plume was falling down.
I watched with a bunch of retired guys from the Air Force who'd flown out from California just to see it. At the time I was glad I did it once and was pretty sure I wouldn't do it again yet I was sad to see the program end.
