What else should I know about attending a launch?
You should know that traffic will be horrendous immediately after a launch. Bring a picnic no matter what time of day you come out to watch the launch. Just make it a picnic breakfast, lunch, or dinner as appropriate for the time of day. There can be up to 2-1/2 hours of launch delays before the rocket either launches, or "scrubs" for the day. Bring coloring books and activity kits for children. Look around your potential viewing site for bathrooms (which are available at Space View Park where the I like to watch launches). Don't forget to bring sun tan lotion, as well as bug & mosquito repellent.
