Does anyone know which way it launches? I'm going to go see it, but I'm not sure whether I should go south of Canveral or north.

Spacecraft seperation completed. All five THEMIS satellites are on their way, and Delta II notches up another success.

Up next are three launches all scheduled for March 9... an Atlas 5 from the Cape, an Ariane 5 from Kourou, and a Falcon 1 from Kwajalein. Then Atlantis on March 15.

In the meantime, we have Rosetta's flyby of Mars and New Horizons' flyby of Jupiter both in the next two weeks.
