43. Yes, I saw it happen from my back yard.
Edited on Sun Jul-30-06 10:41 PM by tinfoilinfor2005
We were living a few short miles from the Cape at the time, and we always watched the launches.

It was horrible. I think the worst part (other than the obvious tragedy) was that smoke cloud that developed on explosion. It just hung in the sky for hours because there was not a lick of breeze that day. And eventually it just floated in one piece across the sky. But it seemed as though it was up there all day and it was so eery to see it every time you looked up. Burned in my mind.
