Atlas 3A

G and I saw it, right on schedule. We tried to keep the kids up, but they just couldn't make it. Too bad, because it was a good one. It took almost two minutes before it was visible over the tops of the mangroves, straight off the end of our dock. Pretty amazing considering it's about 150 miles away. The small red flare was visible for almost three minutes, before it winked out with a small burst of white.

Someone else was outside watching. From a dock to the south, I heard a hearty, "Yeah!"
