Folks in the New England area and looking south might see a satellite launch in the next 10 minutes.
Launch is in Virginia...



[edit] We saw it! A white fan emanating from a bright point due south heading east, maybe 20° above the horizon.
Too faint to image with a phone but very cool! Pretty sure that's the first sat launch I've seen from here :)

[edit2] Sorry to see that the video was taken down. Someone trying to make a buck I guess...

You can find lots of images/vids on the net. This is pretty close to what we saw moving up and across the night sky. Pretty cool...

The Next Big Event may well be SpaceX lighting up a 33 engine Super Heavy booster.
After the (unexpected, no doubt) launch site damage caused by the 4 engine SLS/Artemis booster I can only imagine the carnage Super Heavy might cause...
