No, it''s not too loud on take off...but when it returns it is a sonic boom! The first time we heard it I thought a bomb went off!

Those sure are something, huh? I grew up in a town that has an aviation convention every summer and have all different types of aircraft that come. I remember during that week, many times as a kid, hearing sonic booms from the Concord Jet. It would shake the foundation of our house!

That''s so cool, Jazmine! I think if I remember right you responded to me when I was asking about places to live in Orlando and I think we are in the same town!

We are about 40 minutes or so from the cape. It is not too loud on take off, but really loud upon return!

I miss living in Orlando. I remember moving to Orlando from NY. It was the coolest experience in the world to see the shuttle. That picture is awesome!

Here is another pic we took a few minutes after the shuttle went by. It really lights up the sky for quite a while!

I remember seeing it on my way home from work. It was one of the best launches I have seen, the colors were so pretty!
