In 2005 we were on holiday in Florida. We visited Cape Canaveral on July 20th and in the distance we could see Space Shuttle Discovery on the launch platform. On the 26th we were near Orlando, which was more than 100km away from Cape Canaveral. Despite the large distance we could clearly see the launch of the Space Shuttle, which was a special moment. After separation of the two rocket boosters the Space Shuttle disappeared out of sight. Only a circle of fog remained in the air. It was the first Space Shuttle mission after the disaster with the Columbia in 2003.
