Getting to the 3-mile view

Original post made by Todd Heapy, Downtown North, on Jul 5, 2011

In the months I've had to make my plans for viewing the launch I have done a lot of research on places to best see a launch from. Of course, there's miles of Florida coastline in which to stand along. It all depends on how close or far you want to be. You can see a launch from hundreds of miles away if you so chose. My goal was to get as close as possible without actually being an astronaut, since there was clearly no time for that kind of training now.

Todd! So wish we could have snuck in with you via your luggage or some other legit means. Thanks for doing this blog for those of us who can't be at the 3-mile marker. V and K

Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund

For the last 23 years, the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund has given away more than $4 million to local nonprofits serving children and families. When you make a donation, every dollar is automatically doubled, and 100% of the funds go directly to local programs. It’s a great way to ensure your charitable donations are working at home.
