    Whooop! We may get to see it at long last!

    Where would be the best place near Kissimee to get a good view of it?

    As Kissimee is some distance from Cape Canaveral then you would be able to see it from anywhere in that vacinity.
    We`ve seen a couple of launches from our villa in Davenport which is near to Kissimee.
    Don`t expect to see much detail from that distance though. You will see a bright light and a vapour trail, but that`s about it. It`s very doubtful that you will hear it.
    You just have to keep your eyes peeled towards the N.East at the time of the launch and keep your fingers crossed.

    Thank you for that Slowhand. We may travel a bit nearer but it won't be much nearer I shouldn't think?

    CAPE CANAVERAL – NASA will announce later today that the final launch of space shuttle Discovery will be delayed at least until February.

    Bummer - we rescheduled our Feb trip in the hope of seeing the shuttle launch. Now it's been moved... to within the dates of our original plans!

    Still... it may still be delayed.
