Shuttle Launch

Sun 24th Nov 2002 01:49 BST by Andrew from Bath, U.K.
A shuttle launch is currently in progress. BBC.co.uk - audio/visual panel link at top right. Although you won't be able to see it with the naked eye, it'll be over the UK in a couple of minutes. Sometimes you can see it when it's sunset.

I usually go to MSNBC.com and follow the link for NASA TV. In the past I've been watching live TV transmitted from one of the Shuttles via it's network of supporting communication satellites down eventually to Houston, USA, encoded and sent under the Atlantic Ocean before being routed directly to my desktop, whilst out of the corner of my eye watching the white dot that is the same Shuttle and co-joined International Space Station pass across the evening twilight sky. Times of Shuttle and other satellite crossings for your exact location can be found at Heaven's Above.com.
I'm currently feeling ok
