What's the four towers? Static arrestors?

Possibly, I should know my recently deceased father in-law was with NASA mission control for years.

Reason I was in Arizona 4 weeks in September getting my mom moved back to Houston. I've got a bunch of NASA memorabilia now which is really cool.

Oh.
If you get a chance to post some pics, I and probably a few others would love to see them!

I am 55 miles from the coast. Need a major zoom to even make a picture look good.
Besides have a dry front moving in now with clouds. If it goes much further I wont see anything.

Yes Randy thanks for the heads up.
Night launches are always the best. The clouds moved in but they were broken enough that it was still a good show. :-)

Wouldn't be surprised when Directv sends a bird up it takes about a year to light up. Everything is done in baby steps.
