Low clouds unexpectedly moved in and forced a scrub for at least 24 hours...

Now to reset for the Superbowl... What a busy TV weekend...

Mission managers gave the “go” for filling space shuttle Endeavour's external fuel tank, which began at 6:50 p.m. EST. The process should take approximately three hours. There is a 60 percent chance of favorable weather for tomorrow's launch time at 4:14 a.m. EST.

Not looking good...

We currently are "red" or “no go” for launch due to the low cloud ceiling.

I didn't watch it on TV, but I stepped outside and got to see it go up. Kept a visual on it for about ten minutes before it finally went below the horizon. I'm about 200 miles from the launch site so it's not as spectacular as being there but still an interesting site.
