ALTOONA, BLAIR COUNTY - Folks in Altoona got a space age treat.
You could see the Shuttle Discovery from Wopsy Mountain about six minutes after takeoff.
At that point, Discovery was nearly six-hundred miles from here, and about 60 miles above the earth. And it was going about 17 thousand miles per hour.
This is the first time a morning twilight launch took the shuttle on a flight path along the east coast.
