Thanks for all your feedback. Looks like they did in fact change the schedule but there is now one additional launch scheduled. Now to decide which one to go to!

Well since they did it on a Thursday instead of the planned original Sunday, I was unable to make it.

Fortunately now there are 2 more scheduled. Hopefully I can line one of them up...

April 19+ and June 28+

We had a great view from anchor about 5 miles south of Titusville. Well worth the effort to see a launch. Now south to Lake Worth and beyond. Dan S/V Marian Claire

It's quite an experience, I saw a dayight Endeavor launch a few years back. And I was a few miles inland in my car.
