Juno NASA Launch Tweetup - CONFIRMATION

This will be fun: I got accepted as an official visitor to attend NASA's Juno launch in August.

I've never been "official visitor" close to a launch before. <g>

There are still security screenings and such to go through, but that's all fine.

Definitely bringing the camera for this one!
