  1. That video isn't in daylight. That was the January 31 launch which launched at 6:11pm, about 10 minutes after sunset, I watched it from my backyard and it was fantastic (although the best view still goes to the Inspiration4 launch). Space/rockets interests me just as much as weather and I watch every single rocket launch from here in South Florida. After numerous tries of trying to see daylight launches in cloudless skies, I eventually gave up as they are simply not visible from here. And since the Astra rocket is 1/4 the size of a Falcon 9 and today's launch being at 1:40pm, there was a 0% chance of seeing it from Miami with the naked eye.
  2. It did go east. The Astra rocket was not visible from Miami.
  3. Hate to break it to you but that's an airplane. You can't see Falcon 9 rockets during the day from Miami, let alone this Astra rocket which is a quarter of the size.
  4. It freaking failed 10 km before reaching orbit. Payload lost.
  5. First launch is scheduled for tomorrow at noon. Hopefully it's a successful launch! https://spaceflightnow.com/2022/06/10/astra-poised-to-begin-three-launch-campaign-with-nasa-hurricane-research-satellites/
  6. GFS had really been consistent showing a storm moving north out of the Caribbean this time next week. Talking about 7 days from now, it's not really long range fantasy. If this doesn't verify something really needs to be done with the GFS.
  7. Models are being pretty consistent with another gulf storm in about 1-2 weeks
  8. Rain since midnight now at 8.21 inches. Total for storm is 10.35 inches. Pressure now down to 1,001.32 mb. Highest rain and lowest pressure I've seen here since I moved the week after Irma hit (September 2017).
  9. We've been getting really impressive torrential rain for the past hour. Now up to 6.52" for today and continuing to rise fast, which means nearly 2 inches in the last 1.5 hour. Pressure down to 1,001.07 mb.
  10. From my backyard Ambient station in Boca Raton: Yesterday: 2.14" As of 8:26am today: 4.71" Current pressure: 1,003.12 hPa Radar looks like there's still another couple inches to come.
  11. Looks like it's not going to even be designated a cyclone before hitting Florida.
  12. Almost looks like there's a new area of rotation forming due west of Key West
  13. I wouldn't let your guard down when some of the squalls closer to the center come through. We could get some nice gusts.
