Phooey :-(
by Simon at 03:32 18/01/06 (Blogs::Simon)
Went to try and watch the launch of the NASA New Horizons probe to Pluto today.
That entailed a 400 mile round trip from Fort Myers to Cape Canaveral, where we found an excellent spot to watch the launch from.

Sadly, the wind was gusting to over 33 knots (the limit for a launch) throughout the launch window, and so it got scrubbed for the day.

Other commitments meant we couldn't stay for the second attempt on Wednesday so all in all a bit disappointing.
