Tonight's shuttle launch can be see by a good chunk of the Eastern US tonight. Since it is a nighttime launch and the shuttle puts out a ton of fire, it will be seen from a far distance. In fact, some of you may be able to see it! If you live in Tennessee or Alabama (like many of you), you will be able to see the shuttle (weather permitting). Here in Arkansas, we will miss out. That's OK thought... I was not planning on staying up until 2:00 am anyways!
If you are REALLY a space geek, you can download a free program that helps track STS-123 during it's mission. You can click here for more information.
