In the below video, a passenger flying from Orlando, Florida captured Space Shuttle Discovery’s final launch from the window seat.  Opportunities like this are why you should always get the window seat.

Growing up in Florida I used to enjoy driving down to the Cape to watch shuttle launches. However, it got to be old when there were at least as many no-go’s as there were actual launches.

But the beer and good seafood at some of the local spots always made it worthwhile.

Awesome. When I was a kid I watched the first space shuttle fly over at night. Just a little dot but a bigger and slower one than satellites. Yes we lived in a rural area. Hey you must have just missed the seperation of the Solid Rocket Boosters.
