Should be sleeping, but I want to see the rocket
Friday, May 13, 2005
I didn't plan on being up this late, but OS upgrades have funny ways of distorting time. Anyhow, it's a quarter to 2, and there's a rocket launch from Vandenberg AFB at 3:22am. An hour and a half from now.

If I didn't have to leave the house at 8 or 8:30am I'd stay up. That is, if I'd gotten more than 4 hours of sleep last night, which I didn't. Drat. I haven't seen a rocket firing in a long time, and even though Vandenberg's 260 miles south of here, you can still see the rockets on a clear night like tonight. Then again, it might not launch at all today. Though by the time you're reading this, it's resolved either way.

If you like it, please share it.
