    We'll be at the Ocala Supercharger about 9:15 this morning until about 9:45. Would we be able to see or shoot (400 f/2.8?) CRS-10 from there? From a few miles farther south on 75? Worth it to drive a bit towards Orlando to be very slightly closer?

    I'm guessing that the combo of daylight, cloudy skies, and sun in our eyes will make this all difficult but thought I'd check with the experts. It'd be very cool to see it.

    Thanks,

    If it's clear enough, look to the southeast. We see the launches from Ocala a lot.

    Thanks. I think we had a clear shot at it... Until the scrub. Oh well.

    Hi,
    I have no idea what the distance and angles are but how cool would it be to take a picture of the launch from the supercharger with one of the charging pedestals in the forground?

    Yep. That was kind of the last minute plan. Until 13 seconds to go. :)

    Not sure how visible the Falcon 9 would have been but we did have some falcon wing doors in the foreground along with a pedestal. Maybe next time.
