I'm posting this as a suggestion from our member "Jupiter":
There is a 60% chance "GO" for the scheduled launch on Monday, 11/18/13 at 1:28pm (2 hr window after) to send a satellite to Mars, aboard the very powerful Atlas V rocket. A great viewing place is the spacious waterfront patio at Rusty's Seafood (628 Glen Cheek Drive, Cape Canaveral, Florida 32920;[masked]) along Port Canaveral. The restaurant has many beers on tap and specialty drinks at very reasonable prices, and a lunch buffet for $8 if interested.
From Lloyd (Organizer) :
This event was suggested from "Jupiter" and I thought it was a great idea even if it was a bit short notice. Sometimes great ideas are on short notice. I used to work for The Boeing Company at the Cape, so I thought this idea was a good idea for those who enjoy these kind of events.
