I'm a bit over twice as far away, but I don't think I'll have the time to drive up there tomorrow. :( I may take some pix from here though if time permits.

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. - NASA called off Thursday's launch of space shuttle Atlantis after detecting problems with fuel gauges in the shuttle's external tank. Officials will try again Friday to launch the shuttle, NASA said.

Two of the four sensors in the shuttle's liquid hydrogen tank indicated that the tank was dry, even though there was fuel inside. Three sensors must be working properly to fly, NASA spokesman Paul Foerman said.

2 fuel sensors were still failing this morning. They are afraid the sensors could fail just after launch, think the fuel is gone, and shut the system down.
