I went up on the rooftop of my company in Pasadena at about t-1 minute. I was looking too far west into the sunset at first but I soon spotted the thin white line much further to the north. The trail stopped quickly, however, but then reappeared after the second stage fired a few seconds later. The rocket then soared high into the evening sky. As it passed almost over-head, I could actually see details in the smoke streaming behind the Pegasus. The second stage quit with two small plumes of smoke and there was nothing more to see except the contrail from the first stage and ignition of the second stage.
All in all it was a very exciting experience. It is times like this when I feel like I never want to sell my ORB shares.
