    We viewed the launch from the Atlantic shore of Delaware, less than 60 miles north of Wallops/Cincoteague, VA. From our untrained perspective, the rocket seemed to travel northeast, i.e., along the East Coast. We lost sight of the initial stage burn after a brief period, then the second stage relit, moments later and we were relieved that all seemed OK. Great job, America.

    Saw the launch and can hear the separation boom from Laurel Delaware, my first night launch, even the wife was thrilled
