My guess is south. The last one from there was fantastic viewed from here in North County San Diego. Shari's photo of it from 400 miles south looked pretty much like what I saw here.

I don't know what the trajectory of that rocket was, but it was visible from Sacramento this morning! They just showed a clip on Fox 40 news that was taken in west Sacramento.



If you are not living on the edge, you are taking up too much space!

"Could do better if he tried!" Report card comments from most of my grade school teachers. Sadly, still true!

Only got a brief sighting here in Carlsbad. Just a small streak, then a small "poof" as the second stage separated. Only visible for about 3-5 seconds. It appeared to be headed southeast, but not much time to observe.
