The clouds had other plans. It had been clearing up but about 40 minutes before the launch, the clouds came rolling in and only got worse. Oh well. Next time.

For the record, the rocket would have gone up in the center between the boat and red light, curving over the air control tower for the Albert Whitted Airport.

I did take the opportunity in the early hours of Monday morning to take an uninterrupted lap of the track, being able to do practically all of it but the last turn, front straight (which is an active runway), and the first turn. Good times.

Here are a few other shots of the same thing, but a little different as the clouds came in.
