Titan 4 launches for final time from Cape Canaveral

This personal video was recorded (by myself) from the press site on the NASA causeway, 4.2 miles away from Pad 40 and the closest one could view the Titan 4 launch.

Turn your volume up to experience a launch as it looks and sounds in person! My small camera cannot handle the brightness & contrast well, and there is significant light fall off from the actual scene (extremely bright) shortly after launch and then again when the rocket clears the frame. The camera was set on it's widest-angle setting, and thus the launch and smoke trail appear much smaller and further away than it really was.
