R/S has been on and off for the past hour due to weather constraints (lightning). They've given the green now, at the end of the launch window. Gonna be a tight squeeze but they've got the slot finally. T-11:00 and counting.

Pretty clean, so long as the solar arrays open.  NASA TV returns for that at 0545 EDT
